The project that is in progress has its focus on analysing (i) the functioning of the EU GI Law for the protection of agricultural products and foodstuffs and (ii) other controversial selected issues. The EU Regulation 1151/2012 on quality schemes for agricultural products and foodstuffs is the targeted legislation of the project. The controversial selected issues include, among others, the proposal for the extension of GI protection to handcrafts and, to non-agricultural products in general, which was put forward between 2013 and 2015 and is still an open question.
