UC Riverside is part of new initiative to share patented research on agriculture

RIVERSIDE, Calif. -- (www.ucr.edu) -- UC Riverside is joining 13 other institutions and foundations in an effort aimed to simplify the management and sharing of their intellectual property and facilitate access to each other's current and future patented agricultural technologies. A paper outlining the new initiative appears in the July 11, 2003, issue of Science and is coauthored by the chancellors or presidents of the universities or foundations.

Named PIPRA or the Public-Sector Intellectual Property Resource for Agriculture, the initiative also aims to achieve food security for the poor and excluded of the world, and has long-term goals for coordinating research-based technology packages and know-how for projects that will directly address critical global agricultural needs.

"One of the University of California's objectives in technology transfer is the public benefit and it makes intuitive sense that collective action with other institutions may enhance our impact in that regard," said Richard C. Atkinson, president of the University of California. "PIPRA is an experiment that will test this supposition. It may also lead to new paradigms of action that could be important in other technology sectors as well."

With the introduction of biotechnology in agriculture, researchers have been able to develop improved staple and specialty crop varieties. Agricultural biotechnology is a major emphasis of the UCR Genomics Institute. Established in 2000, the institute brings together faculty from a number of academic units on campus to foster innovations that advance quality of life in terms of greater agricultural productivity and more nutritious foods.

The Science paper notes that since 1980 the
