The aim of the R&D projects is to optimize the quality while reducing costs of DUS tests within the CPVO network of Examination Offices, to strengthen EU Plant Variety Rights (PVR) and to facilitate enforcement.

The CPVO is also part of the INVITE project Executive Committee. The INVITE project started in July 2019 and is funded by the EU Horizon 2020 R&D programme. The aim of the INVITE project is to improve both efficiency of variety testing and the information available to stakeholders on variety performance under a range of production conditions and biotic and abiotic stresses. The official website of the INVITE project was launched on 15 November 2019. You can consult it at www.h2020-invite.eu
