The IP Key SEA invites the public in Europe and Southeast Asia to the Webinar Series on Plant Variety Rights and UPOV 1991 on 10 - 11 June 2021. The webinar series seeks to continue raising awareness on the benefits of an effective plant variety protection system and membership of the International Union for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants (UPOV 1991). The webinar series will focus on the main features of UPOV 1991 and tackle common issues concerning plant variety rights protection in SEA, the challenges faced by plant breeders and farmers, as well as the contribution of plant variety protection to sustainable farming and global food security while minimising the impact on climate change.
The IP Key SEA Project, in collaboration with CPVO and UPOV, aims to raise awareness on the impact of plant variety rights and membership of countries to UPOV 1991 to farmers and plant breeders and agricultural development. We also would like to highlight the critical role of plant breeding in sustainable farming and global food security.
This webinar is FREE for all to attend, but pre-registration is required.
