After the completion of the project final report (currently being evaluated by the European Commission) AMIGA scientists have started a series of official meeting with European risk assessors and managers to illustrate potential applications of AMIGA results.

On May 16-17 Salvatore Arpaia, Antoine Messéan and Christoph Tebbe visited EFSA premises in Parma and presented to the Environmental working group and the GMO Panel of the European Food Safety Authority the results of the project that might support environmental risk assessment of genetically modified plants in Europe.

On June 12th in Brussels, Salvatore Arpaia the AMIGA project coordinator will brief members of the Regulatory Committee for Directive 2001/18, which include representatives of all EU member states, on the outcomes of the projects that are relevant for the current authorization process for GM crops in Europe.
