The “Science Years” initiative was launched by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research in the year 2000 to increase the public’s confidence in the work of scientists. However, the initiative has not been successful in the field of genetic engineering with the repeated destruction of trial fields sown with genetically modified plants being evidence of this. Professor Dr. Andreas Schier, agricultural scientist from Nürtingen, discusses why this is so.
