Given the exceptional circumstances and the heavy disruption caused by the COVID-19 crisis across the EU, the President of the CPVO has taken the decision to extend deadlines that fall in the period 17 March – 3 May included, until 4 May 2020 for parties to proceedings before the CPVO and the Board of Appeal.

Check our dedicated webpage gathering all important information and CPVO’s decisions concerning COVID-19.


The CPVO mission and activities will be explained in the framework of the annual Angers Loire Valley event on the economy of the region.

This annual event opens the doors to the region’s businesses and allows you to go behind the scenes and see the skills, the research and the production capabilities of some of Angers most important companies and organisations such as the Community Plant Variety Office which will explain its mission and activities. Two weeks to discover the economy of the Angers territory, skills, talents, professions and innovation.
