Title:

Utilising genetic resources in R&D

Where:

York, United Kingdom YO24 1AA

Start Date:

Thursday 13th July

Description:

The ‘Nagoya Protocol on Access to Genetic Resources and the Fair and Equitable Sharing of Benefits Arising from their Utilization to the Convention on Biological Diversity’ establishes a legal framework governing access to genetic resources and the traditional knowledge associated with them.

 

This half day training event is an opportunity to gain an overview of the Nagoya Protocol and associated EU Regulations which have significant implications for the way R&D using certain plant and microbial materials is conducted.  This event will include a variety of interactive learning approaches developed from our recent workshop “Sharing nature’s genetic resources – implementing the Nagoya Protocol on Access and Benefit Sharing“.
