Webinar Syllabus: Following on from the previous session on September 9, during this webinar, we will provide an overview of the patent landscape for plant related inventions.
Which patents have been applied for and/or granted? Are there currently any hurdles in the way to obtain patents for NBTs relating to plants, exceptions to patentability that may exist and possible national differences in patent laws? The participants will receive an overview of at least part of the complex patent licensing landscape in this area.
