About Us

GENET is a European network of non-governmental non-profit organizations engaged in the critical debate of genetic engineering and related topics. GENET was founded in 1995 and is registered under Swiss law. GENET's mission is to provide information on genetic engineering and related topics like plant and animal breeding, human health, agriculture, animal welfare, food production and its implications on biological diversity, human genetics and medicine, the environment and the socioeconomic development. By informing interested organizations and individuals, GENET facilitates the citizens' involvement in decision-making processes which have to guide the development of this technology.
