Awareness-raising by networks and institutions

Awareness is critical to practical ABS implementation, to ensure that institutional managers, researchers and curators understand the larger ethical and legal background, the opportunities that arise from respectful relationships and collaboration and the costs of non-compliance, and their own roles and responsibilities. Examples are provided here of training and awareness-raising activities conducted by international and national networks and institutions.

 

Examples
