The proponents of cultivated animal meat claim that it can feed the world in a sustainable and ethical manner, thereby positively impacting the planet, the well-being of humans, and the welfare animals. There are still many uncertainties about its production at large scales and the wider implications on society and environment.
To shed light, a new multidisciplinary study has been conducted to answer these questions Experts from the fields of law, sociology, biochemical engineering and more are brought together in this conference to track the impact of cultivated meat on society.
The British Academy of Engineering (RAE), the Royal Society and the Royal Academy of Engineering are funding the research for which the APEX Award was given, with Leverhulme Trust support.
Multiple tasks in a study
The goal of the new multidisciplinary research project is to identify and minimize potential risks associated with a wider availability of cell-based food.
Researchers will evaluate the technical aspects, including the cost, energy, and environmental impact of the production. The researchers will also examine the potential threat to farm jobs, and how law can protect citizens when cultured meat exports…
