This site is dedicated to the memory of Jeff Schell
We not only have to know things we also have to understand them
was Jeff Schell's underlying motive to commit to science.
The purpose of this Forum is to keep Jeff Schell's philosophy alive.
Therefore we want to use it as the starting point of a scientifically justified dialogue on the use of biotechnological applications in agriculture.
The ecological, social and socio-economical aspects of GMO use will be taken into consideration.
That must give us a better insight in how the different aspects of GMO use in agriculture are connected.
We firmly believe that fundamental research is the moving force behind scientific progress.
´I'm very much in favor of the idea of a scientifically justified dialogue on the use of biotechnological applications in agriculture and reasoned discussion of GMO's.
Were he here, Jeff would also welcome this initiative. I look forward to being present at the discussion.´
