I'm sure there may be more to the story, but first impressions are... Let the researchers resign, or fire them, and then charge them with theft of intellectual property. University, or Commission research and development belongs to those who funded it, unless they found some wonderfully unethical loophole. If the researchers had done the work on their time, in their lab, and with their money....there would be no issue. They didn't invest anything, they were paid. As soon as they aren't allowed to take the germplasm with them, I suspect they would want their old job back.
