EU ABS Networking Event
What is being done by the ABS community to support users of genetic resources across the Europe Union?
On Monday, June 14, 2021 from 2-4:00 p.m. CEST, the German Nagoya Protocol HuB will be co-hosting an online EU ABS Networking Event together with the European Marine Biological Resource Centre, the Union for Ethical Biotrade, ABS-int, Dutch ABS National Focal Point (hosted by Wageningen University and Research), and the Natural History Museum London.
Why this event?
Since 2014, actors across the European Union have been hard at work figuring out how best to support users of genetic resources in their respective sectors or regions with access and benefit-sharing (ABS) and compliance requirements. We would like to take a step back and ask “What has been done? Is it working? What still needs to be done?”
This online event will bring different actors from across the EU together to reflect on “capacity building for users” — gaps and ways forward into the future.
There will be interesting impulse presentations and panel discussions on the needs of the user community and as well as an expert discussion on how to move forward into the future.
Interested in attending?
More detailed information can be found in the draft agenda.
