Welcome to the #GiveGenesAChance campaign! Initiated by David Spencer and Svenja Augustin, both PhD students from Germany working in plant science. In 2021 we started our work with a joint statement signed by now over 370 early career researchers from all over Europe! Calling on the European Union to adopt a science-based regulation of gene-edited crops. Enabling the daily work of thousands of European scientists to advance our crops aiding our ambitious goals of the Farm2Fork strategy to reach a resilient more sustainable agriculture in Europe!

Our aim is to connect, empower and represent early career researchers across Europe working in life sciences. We want to provide a community that allows to learn the necessary skills and work together to voice our vision and ideas on the political stage of Europe!
