Kick off EU-Twinning project Ukraine

News publication date: 12 May 2021

The Twinning project Ukraine will kick off on Monday 14 June. The project is financed by the EU and is a collaboration of Latvia, Poland and the Netherlands.


The project aims to strengthen the national legislation of Ukraine in the fields of state supervision (control) of GMOs in open systems, protection of Plant Breeders’ Rights, and seed and seedling production certification. Naktuinbouw mainly helps to strengthen the Plant Breeders’ Rights system in Ukraine.

The project will last 2 years. Because the contact moments are still online in the first period of the project, the focus in the first part will be on the phytosanitary legislation and regulations in Ukraine.

Note: the kick-off was initially planned on May 18, but has been moved to June 14 at the request of the EU.
