The Community Plant Variety Office (CPVO), the EU agency that administers Community Plant Variety Rights, has launched an open consultation on how it communicates with plant breeders, the wider industry and other stakeholders.
The results will inform an evaluation of these activities and advice on future communications strategy for the CPVO.
The extent that CPVO should be more visible in the European public debates on intellectual property rights as they apply to plants, is among the questions.
CPVO changes are likely as Britain leaves the EU.
You can access the communication here.
The survey is about the CPVO’s approach to spreading information about itself and about Plant Variety Rights. They have embraced social media in recent years and have recently improved the website.
