Genetic Resources (GenRes) are part of a complex international regulatory framework that regulates the various phases of their identification, recovery, characterisation, conservation, protection of Intellectual Property (IP) and use. This complexity is managed by various international organisations which, each with their own role, guarantee the appropriate protection and management of GenRes.
During this workshop, high-level representatives of the ECPGR, FAO, CPVO and the EC will share their views on the current international regulatory framework and its consequences for IP management of pre-breeding material. European research projects with a focus on GenRes will share their views on the IP landscape in their respective fields.
In the evening, a guided tour through the Pillnitz palace garden awaits you presenting the palace garden history and interesting botanical highlights.

The BreedingValue project comprises 20 international partners with multi-disciplinary expertise on berry GenRes and breeding activities – from research, breeding and selection to value identification. The project enhances methodologies for GenRes and breeding material management, conservation, characterisation and evaluation. It increases the knowledge of berry GenRes value on the European level and even beyond, by developing advanced phenotyping and genotyping platforms, and promoting their use in creating a link between the European regional collections and public and profit institutions involved in strawberry, raspberry and blueberry. Providing standardised research data on phenotypic and genotypic characterisation through a user-friendly database improves the quality and usability of GenRes breeding material, leads to quality improvements of collections and promotes their utilisation in breeding programs. The development of the technologies, access to a fundamental knowledge base, and exploitable advances made by the consortium improve the competitiveness and sustainability of European berry industry in the long run.
