Friday 23 March 2012

President of CRIIGEN and members of the Board and the Scientific Council greatly congratulate Professor Gilles-Eric Seralini for his Scientific Excellence Award (PES) for the year 2011.

New responsability of the President of CRIIGEN on GMOs

Wednesday 15 September 2010


Annoucement of the President of CRIIGEN, Paris September 10th, 2010

Since I have been nominated as rapporteur to the European Parliament for amending the 2001/18 European directive on GMOs released in the envionment, I decided to suspend, as of today my duties as President of CRIIGEN. I hope that our Secretary General, Prof. Jean-Marie Pelt, if the Board approved this choice ensures the vacancy of the presidency the necessary time.

I ask the Board scheduled for September 17th, 2010 to give me note of this decision.

I assure you of my friendship,

Corinne LEPAGE

The decision was accepted on September 17, 2010
