The process of collecting, sharing and receiving of living organisms, such as plants, animals, microbes or derivatives during a research must happen in a careful manner. If the living organisms are coming from abroad, this should comply with the Nagoya Proctocol.
The Nagoya Protocol applies when collecting, receiving and taking of seeds, plants and other living organisms from other countries. The Protocol watches over the access regime to genetic resources and the fair division of the advantages resulting from these genetic resources.
If you have any questions regarding the Nagoya Protocol and/or the ABS Regulation you can contact the Nagoya contact point of Hasselt University: firstname.lastname@example.org
