On 1 and 2 December 2020 Ernst-Jan Louwers has presented and moderated the webinar Grow and Flourish in the Future of Today on plant breeding, IP protection and innovation in horticulture. The webinar was organised by Louwers IP|Technology Advocaten and presented in two parts of 75 minutes.
You can view both parts of the webinar via the following links:
- webinar Part 1 with presentations by Judith de Roos (Plantum) and Ernst-Jan Louwers on IP aspects connected to plant breeding, with a focus on plant variety rights and trademark rights but also with some connected areas like patent law, database rights and trade secrets;
- webinar Part 2 with presentations by Rick van de Zedde (Wageningen University & Research), Gertjan Meeuws (Seven Steps To Heaven) and Ernst-Jan Louwers on innovation in hortivulture and IP protection of innovation.
