Workshop on the Nagoya Protocol and the EU ABS regulation

events | seminars, workshops |

As of 2016, researchers at SLU and other universities who use genetic resources and traditional knowledge from other countries need to declare this in agreement with the Nagoya Protocol and the EU ABS regulation.

Not declaring the use of genetic resources or traditional knowledge means that you risk not being eligible for research funding from several research funding bodies.

To help SLU researchers adhere to the Nagoya Protocol, the SLU vice-chancellor has appointed a Nagoya working group.

We now invite researchers, heads of department and others interested to a workshop during which we will inform about the Nagoya Protocol and its implementation, internationally and here at SLU.

Participants are expected to be familiar with the basics of the Nagoya Protocol and the EU ABS regulation on access and benefit-sharing.

More information (in Swedish) is available at Naturvårdsverket.
