What will I learn?

Exhaustion of breeder’s IP rights, including Community Plant Variety Rights and U.S. Plant Patents, may seriously harm the legitimate interests of right holders and their licensees. Exhaustion may also affect the legal protection of harvested material.

This webinar will include a discussion on when exhaustion applies from both a European and U.S. rights perspective (including an examination of the impact of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Lexmark decision), possible ways to prevent exhaustion, and the impact of exhaustion on the cascade protection of harvested material (among others – under the Nadorcott judgment from the European Court of Justice).

What will I learn?

The CIOPORA Breeding Academy is a new education program designed specifically for plant breeders and R&D departments of the commercial breeding companies. It provides advanced training in the latest breeding technologies, including New Breeding Techniques (NBT), and the related regulatory aspects.

Webinar 1:

The implementation of NBT in the breeding process of ornamental crops is becoming increasingly relevant with the pricing going down, both for producing supporting genomic data and for the implementation of the technologies. When deciding on implementing NBT to optimize a breeding process, we are looking not only at the advantages and disadvantages of specific technologies concerning the breeding process. We are looking at a whole set of interactions between the technical possibilities, pricing, and bureaucratic constraints, including regulation and IP 

During the webinar, we will analyze the advantages and disadvantages of implementing NBT in a holistic manner that will include the technologies themselves and the bureaucratic constraints. Since the answer of relevance will be influenced both by characteristics of the crop (availability of data, protocols, etc) and markets to be reached (regulation and IP), the emphasis will be on the questions that need clarification to make an educated decision on the relevance of NBT implementation for specific purposes and goals.
