CGIAR Releases Guidelines on Management of Its Intellectual AssetsAugust 7, 2013
The board of Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) has approved the ‘Implementation Guidelines' for the CGIAR Principles on Management of Intellectual Assets (IA) which complement the set of principles approved and adopted by the consortium since March 2012 to govern its IA use.
CGIAR has implemented the guidelines as it recognizes that the sum of its past investments are embodied in its collective intellectual assets. These assets need to be effectively managed for the benefit of smallholder farmers all over the world. The additional information and illustrations aim to facilitate a better understanding of the CGIAR IA Principles and will guide their interpretation and coherent implementation across the CGIAR Consortium. The IA Implementation Guidelines apply to all 15 member Centers of the Consortium, particularly in the research activities carried out to implement its Strategy and Results Framework.
