Public Understanding of Biotechnology (PUB)


The overall aim of the PUB programme is to promote a clear understanding of the potential of biotechnology and to ensure broad public awareness, dialogue and debate on its current and potential future applications, including Genetic Modification (GM).

The project will provide information to members of the public and initiate discussion around topical and sometimes controversial issues.

Start: 2003
End: 2006
A programme on the Public Understanding of Biotechnology (PUB) was launched by the South African Agency for Science and Technology Advancement (SAASTA) in 2003.
