International Conference about patent on seeds

From July 20th – 21st 2010, the European Patent Office (EPO) was having a public hearing on the contested patents on broccoli and tomato, both patents on conventionally bred plants. In order to raise the public awareness on the crucial issue of patents and their impact on food security, No patents on seeds! organized the conference “Patents on Seeds – The turning point?” a day before the hearing. The conference informed about and discussed recent development regarding patents on seeds and animals, highlighting the negative impacts of the current system, the changes that would be needed, and possibilities for effecting those changes.
