The latter heading includes progress on the creation of a central advisory service at ISNAR, audits of intellectual property, and plans for a study of the feasibility of a wholly owned subsidiary to hold patents for centers and act on their behalf.Attached to the report are terms of reference for a center review of IPR management as revised in March 1999, and thoughts by T. G. Reeves on the development of a wholly owned subsidiary for CGIAR intellectual property, including comments by John Barton.Agenda document, CGIAR Mid Term Meeting, May 1999, discussed under the heading of Consultative Council Propositions on Science.
