EU - Webinar & CPVO coop: IP rights in Agri-food Sector: a Guide to Geographical Indications, Trademarks, Patents & Plant Variety Denominations

The European Agri-food sector is a strategic sector that ensures the world’s highest standard of food security, safety and quality, while adapting to the changing needs of European citizens and the increasingly global challenges.

In the European Union, in 2020, the Agri-food industry was the main branch of manufacturing, with 289,000 companies employing 4,240,000 people and with a turnover of approximately EUR 1.100.000 million, representing 14% of consumption. Nearly half of this turnover and more than 62% of jobs were generated in SMEs, which mostly have fewer than 50 jobs.

The European Agri-food sector is a strategic sector that ensures the world’s highest standard of food security, safety and quality, while adapting to the changing needs of European citizens and the increasingly global challenges.

In the European Union, in 2020, the Agri-food industry was the main branch of manufacturing, with 289,000 companies employing 4,240,000 people and with a turnover of approximately EUR 1.100.000 million, representing 14% of consumption. Nearly half of this turnover and more than 62% of jobs were generated in SMEs, which mostly have fewer than 50 jobs.

The European IP Helpdesk Training Team in collaboration with the Community Plant Variety Office are organizing a ‘Webinar on IP rights in Agri-food Sector’. The aim of this webinar is to improve the knowledge of intellectual property rights associated with a major sector, such as the agri-food sector. This webinar will provide a non-exhaustive list of examples of IP rights used in Agri-food Sector, focusing on Geographical Indications, Trademarks, Patents and Plant Variety Denominations. There will be a Q&A at the end of the presentations.

In this webinar, you will learn about GI’s, Trademarks, Patents and Plant Varieties Denominations: what they are, why they are useful for the Agri-food sector, how they differentiate us from our competitors and why they add value to our products and services, among others; strategic topics for the development of a robust and competitive agro-industrial sector.

Duration: 60 minutes (presentation) + 15 minutes (Q&As)

Fee: The webinar will be offered free of charge.
