Since 2008 the CAS-IP blog published some 480 posts, and received as many comments. But everything has an ending and now it’s time for us to say goodbye… it’s been a great journey!
As editor I learned a great deal, both personally and professionally. Special thanks to DGIS who provided support that made this project possible, to Victoria Henson-Apollonio who, as manager of CAS-IP until 2010, supported the work wholeheartedly, and to Peter Bloch who could be relied upon to contribute regularly, and who wrote some of the most popular of our posts!
Where can I continue to read about IP in Ag4Dev?
Visit the latest CGIAR blog on Legal/IP issues CLIPnet, where we will be covering similar content of interest to the agricultural IP community.
Why is CAS-IP blog closing?
The CGIAR has recently undergone an important reform process designed to improve delivery of its research results. The former system-wide units including the Central Advisory Service on Intellectual Property (CAS-IP) have now been integrated into the Consortium Office under the supervision of the Consortium Legal Counsel, Ms. Elise Perset.
Will I still be able to access the CAS-IP blog posts?
Yes, for now the blog will remain online as an archive.
Thanks for reading, interacting and sending your post suggestions and comments. See you at
Over and out….
