Hang Nguyen is a Post-Doc Researcher at the University of Eastern Finland (UEF) specializing in Intellectual Property (IP) Law. Currently, her research concerns farmers’ privileges in Vietnamese Law compared to the European Union (EU) Law. As an agricultural country, Vietnam’s IP agriculture-related regulations, such as plant variety and farmer’s privileges, are not very developed; meanwhile, these regulations are more advanced in the EU. The comparison between the EU and Vietnam shows what is missing and what can be applied to Vietnam laws. Also, this research points out the possibility to protect Vietnamese agriculture products under other regimes rather than plant variety such as certification marks, collective marks, geographic indications, etc.
