Open Access, and Sustainable Benefit Sharing: Scientific Input to  
International Policy Decisions” to take place at the NH Collection  
Brussels Centre, Brussels, on March 10-11.

Information on the project that organises the workshop, and the first  
workshop celebarted in Germany in January can be found here:

Objet : SAVE THE DATE: Workshop on Digital Sequence Information, Open  
Access, and Sustainable Benefit Sharing: Scientific Input to  
International Policy Decisions

Dear Colleagues,

The Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) will meet  
in October 2020 in Kunming, China to negotiate and define the  
international biodiversity targets for the next 10 years. In parallel  
to these discussions, the issue of benefit sharing from “Digital  
Sequence Information” (DSI) arising from Genetic Resources accessed  
under the Nagoya Protocol and CBD will also be negotiated. At stake in  
these negotiations for biologists is open access to sequence data via  
the large public databases.

In order to avoid worst-case scenarios, science-based solutions for  
benefit sharing that do not endanger open access are urgently needed.  
The scientific community must engage and proactively develop  
interdisciplinary and fair solutions for all concerned in advance of  
these negotiations. To this end, the German Federal Ministry of  
Education and Research (BMBF) has funded an interdisciplinary project  
led by the Leibniz Institute DSMZ and the Leibniz Institute IPK  
Gatersleben to research DSI policy options and involve the scientific  
stakeholder community across the European Union.

To better understand the scientific needs and involve the European  
scientific stakeholders and their representatives in these policy  
developments, we will host a workshop on “Digital Sequence  
information, Open Access, and Sustainable Benefit Sharing: Scientific  
Input to International Policy Decisions” on March 10-11, 2020 at the  
NH Collection Brussels Centre, in Brussels, Belgium.

. If you are unable to attend the meeting or feel that further  
expertise from your institution or other European institutions should  
become involved, please feel free to forward this message.

An agenda will be forthcoming in February.

Sincerely,

Amber Scholz, Jens Freitag, Upneet Hillebrand
