News of 31/05/2013

2012 was a busy year for ANSES both in terms of scientific output and institutional activities.  Important milestones throughout the year included: the inauguration of the Plant Health Laboratory in Angers, a high level of involvement in bee health and the long-term effects of GMOs (genetically-modified organisms), mobilisation in the context of the epidemiological surveillance platform during the emergence of the Schmallenberg virus, and more generally of its laboratories for bovine tuberculosis and brucellosis, renewal of its expert groups, development of international cooperation initiatives (with the United States, China, the OIE, WHO, etc.), assessment of the research, reference and surveillance activities of our laboratories, and a scientific future planning exercise by the Agency's Scientific Board, in addition to the signing of the first Goals and Performance contract between the Agency and the French Government.

Published today, the Agency's 2012 Activity Report takes a close look at all of these achievements as well as many others that illustrate the wide scope of ANSES's activities and provide insight into the integrated approach to health and safety to which we are committed.
