CIOPORA is the international association that groups together breeders of ornamental and fruit varieties of asexual reproduction, with a view to assist them in the protection of their Intellectual Property Rights.
Founded in 1961, CIOPORA represents both, individual plant breeders and plant breeding companies, which hold a vast majority of the most important plant varieties in the horticultural and fruit sectors. As ornamental and fruit varieties account for more than 60% of all the Plant Breeders’ Right titles and Plant Patents granted worldwide, the importance for the association to exert influence on Plant Variety Protection related legislation becomes obvious.
With this goal in mind, CIOPORA works closely with international organizations, such as UPOV, WTO and WIPO, as well as with national governments in order to guarantee the sufficient protection of plant breeders' Intellectual Property Rights.
