Our Philosophy and Mission

The mission of the Bioscience Resource Project is:

To provide the highest quality scientific information and analysis to enable a healthy food system and a healthy world.”

 Our Philosophy

By providing information, inventions, ideas and analysis, science and technology shape the future. The Bioscience Resource Project wants the future to be biodiverse, sustainable, just and peaceful. We believe that science and technology can, and should, be consistent with these values.

How to achieve this consistency is the most important topic in science and over the long term it is a prerequisite for the well-being of humans and the planet. However, its achievement depends upon the continuous and conscious choices of individuals and organizations who actively aspire to these public interest values.

Our Aims

The Bioscience Resource Project website and the Independent Science News website support these choices by providing independent research, news, commentary and analysis for the biological sciences. Topics covered include the science of food and agriculture and the impacts of food and agriculture on human health and the environment. Both websites will help you access scientific research and ideas that can help you make more fully informed decisions.
