Summary
Genetic resource policies have evolved over the past few years from internationally negotiated concepts to practical issues that researchers and research managers increasingly have to deal with. In this course, genetic resource professionals working at the practical and institutional level with plant materials are provided with a basic knowledge of (inter)national policies and institutional frameworks that regulate access and benefit sharing, and intellectual property rights. Above all, the course focuses on the practical applications of these policies on biotechnological research, plant breeding and conservation settings.
