Utilization of non-human biological material that comes from abroad is more than just a matter of competence in research techniques and methods. Scientists must be aware of legal and procedural requirements in order to correctly access biological material and to respect existing international and national regulations on plant genetic resources. Scientists need to be familiar with the Nagoya Protocol and terms such as Prior Informed Consent, Mutually Agreed Terms, Benefit-Sharing and Due Diligence in research.
Training will focus on the
- Nagoya Protocol on Access to Genetic Resources and Benefit Sharing (ABS) and the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD),
- International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (ITPGRFA FAO),
- Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES).

The course will provide solid knowledge on
- Correct and lawful access to genetic resources and benefit-sharing for academic research,
- Requirements for importing material under CITES in general, and specifically for plant genetic resources,
- Swiss regulations,
- Available support and counseling services for scientists in Switzerland.
Lernziele The overall goal of this course is to inform young scientists about the relevant international treaties and existing international and Swiss regulations that affect research projects with genetic resources and to illustrate which steps to undertake.

Bemerkungen PhD students of the DUW and PSC will have priority.
Participation is limited to 20 people.
