International Conference about patents 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  and discussed recent developments regarding patents on seeds and animals, highlighting the negative impacts of the current system, the changes that are needed and possibilities for implementing those changes.
