    1. Wheat Research Funding in Australia: The Rise of Public–Private–Producer Partnerships (pages 30–35)

      Julian M. Alston and Richard S. Gray

      Version of Record online: 16 APR 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/1746-692X.12017

      The Australian wheat research system was transformed profoundly by three institutional innovations. First, in 1990 the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) was created to provide levy-funded R&D. Second, in 1994 the Plant Breeder’s Rights Act was passed, providing the legal framework for the collection of end-point royalties (EPRs), now the primary source of funding for wheat-breeding activities in Australia

      The debate on Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) in the plant breeding industry over the past 3 years has been important for the future of the plant breeding sector and for global food security in the coming decades. Intensive discussions have led to initiatives aimed at reducing the imbalance that appeared to have developed between two intellectual property systems: Plant Breeders Rights (PBR) on new plant varieties and patent rights on plant-related inventions

    2. Innovation in Livestock Genetic Improvement (pages 42–47)

      M. Mofakkarul Islam, Alan Renwick, Chrysa Lamprinopoulou and Laurens Klerkx

      The success of innovation policies addressing the bioeconomy – and particularly those related to agriculture and food – will depend on how the concept is translated into policies, and therefore on how the term is understood and defined. In this article, different ‘clusters’ of definitions are considered, alternatively biotechnologies, biomass, and biochemical and biophysical processes as key criteria for identification
