Dr. Sven Bostyn (LLB, Lic. Jur., LLM law, PhD law) is Associate Professor of Biomedical Innovation Law at the Center for Advanced Studies in Biomedical Innovation Law (CeBIL https://jura.ku.dk/cebil), Faculty of Law, University of Copenhagen. He also lectures at the Institute for Information Law (IVIR) of the University of Amsterdam and is Visiting Professor (chargé de cours invité) at the Université de Liège. He is also a regular lecturer on CEIPI courses in Strasbourg.

Sven is one of the most prominent authorities in Europe in the area of patent law in general and in life sciences (including patent law relating to pharmaceuticals, biotech, medical devices, SPC’s, software, and artificial intelligence) in particular. He has written extensively on most areas of patent law, and apart from those subjects already mentioned, he has also published in the field of plant patent protection, Plant Variety Rights, software-related inventions, European and international harmonization of patent law, and the Unitary Patent system.

Sven is the single author of more than 60 scientific publications. He is a regular speaker at international conferences, where he speaks on a wide variety of topics, including IP protection in life sciences, pharma patents, SPC’s, regulatory exclusivities in life science, IP issues relating to software and artificial intelligence, patent protection for plants and plant variety rights systems.

 

In the September 2021 webinar series, Dr. Sven Bostyn will give an exclusive three-part crash-course on patents for New Breeding Techniques and plant related inventions (Sept 9, 16 & 30).

Webinar Syllabus: The first webinar in the CIOPORA Academy series 3/2021 will explain the types of patents you can obtain (or be confronted with) in the context of New Breeding Techniques (NBTs). We will look at the various types (products, processes), the patentability requirements, the scope of protection, and how these patents can be enforced.

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 2:

The current knowledge on the genomics of rosaceous temperate fruits: pipfruit (apple and pear) and stone fruit (peach, cherry, almond and apricot) will be presented, with special emphasis on peach and other Prunus, including information on their variability and domestication process, and the genetics of the main valuable traits.

The impact of this information on traditional breeding is increasing and marker-assisted selection has become routine. Two new marker-based methods, adapted to clonally-reproducing species with long intergeneration periods will be discussed, one for mining and introgressing variability from exotic materials (marker-assisted introgression or MAI) and the other (resynthesis) to produce, with conventional approaches, lines that are similar to a top cultivar and integrate other valuable characters.

The Spanish experience on the use of new genomic tools for breeder’s rights protection and possible whole-genome approaches for EDV characterization and IP management will be proposed.

Dr. Pere Arús

Dr. Pere Arús

Plant & Animal Researcher at IRTA/CRAG, Spain

Dr. Pere Arús is agricultural engineer (Universitat de València, 1974) and PhD in Genetics (University of California, Davis, 1984). His areas of expertise include population genetics, crop evolution and plant breeding, and he has specialized in the use of molecular markers and other genomics tools in plant genetics and breeding. His current main interests are in four crops: peach, almond, strawberry and melon, where he works on the genetics and genomics of characters related with fruit quality and disease resistance, and in the development of marker-based breeding methods that allow to circumvent some of the limitations of breeding in clonally-reproduced tree crops. Dr. Arús is autor of more than 200 scientific publications and has had various management-related activities at IRTA: director of the Center of Cabrils (2007-2009) and Chief Scientist (2009-2015). He is one of the initiators of the Center for Research in Agricultural Genomics (CRAG) and was its deputy director (2003-2018).
