A Primer on Science Policy for Biodiversity Research - Webinar Series

We're happy to announce that the Global Genome Biodiversity Network (GGBN) and ERGA with the support of Digital Sequence Information (DSI) network are organizing a two-part webinar series focused on ABS (Access and Benefit Sharing), the Nagoya Protocol and DSI this April. Join us by filling the registration form below! Spots are limited.

First Session (April 8th 2024, 09:00 - 11:00 CET)

An introduction to Access and Benefit Sharing (registrations closed)

This session will concentrate on the Nagoya Protocol, intended as an introductory guide tailored to our communities. It will be structured in two parts: a theoretical segment, which will be recorded, followed by an interactive Q&A segment, which will not be recorded. We invite members from EBP, GGBN, ERGA, and Africa BP to join this enlightening discussion.

Speaker: Scarlett Sett (CSIRO-ACDP)

Second Session (April 24th 2024, 17:00 - 19:00 CET)

Digital Sequence Information (DSI) & the Convention on Biological Diversity

This session will dig deeper into Access and Benefit-Sharing (ABS), Digital Sequence Information (DSI), and the Convention on Biological Diversity. It is designed to build on the foundational knowledge from the first session and provide deeper insights into DSI-related topics.

Speaker: Amber Scholz (Leibniz Institute DSMZ)
