Due to the exceptional circumstances that are occurring both in our country and globally, the IV INTERNATIONAL SEMINAR ON DESIGNATIONS OF ORIGIN AND GEOGRAPHICAL INDICATIONS scheduled for 26-27 May 2020 at the University of Alicante is postponed until the situation is stabilized.

At that time, which we all hope will be as soon as possible, the new date will be communicated sufficiently in advance.

The Direction and Coordination of the Seminar thank you for your understanding.
