EU to form science panel to replace chief scientific advisor

The European Commission has decided to create a new science advisory panel to replace the position of chief scientific advisor, which was scrapped due to pressure from anti-GMO NGOs.

The new science panel will have 7 members will be sourced from all over the world by a selection committee. While there are concerns that this body will take the form of a political body that would advise on science policy rather than on science itself, it nonetheless remains positive that something will replace the position that Professor Anne Glover used to hold.
