Project Summary

The U.S. proposes this half day seminar during the afternoon of August 23, 2017, in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, as part of an initiative on plant variety protection. This seminar follows up on the one-day program on plant variety protection for SMEs held last year on the margins of the 2016 SOM3 meetings in August 2016 in Lima, Peru. The goal of the seminar is to provide an opportunity APEC economies to share information on best practices concerning the commercialization of plant varieties. Topics will include the government role in technology transfer, the role of technology transfer offices in commercialization of new plant varieties, and “success stories” from SMEs in APEC member economies and other developing countries. Speakers will include the Vice-Secretary General of UPOV, representatives from technology transfer offices at universities and government agencies, IP licensing experts, and plant breeders from APEC member economies and developing countries.  Participants to the seminar should include government officials from APEC member intellectual property agencies and plant variety protection offices, researchers from academic institutions, representatives from trade associations and companies.
