Patterns of Livestock Production in the Development of Bioeconomy
The 68th Annual Meeting of the European Federation of Animal Science (EAAP) will be held at the Solaris Tallinn Convention from 28 August through 1 Sept. 2017. The main theme of the meeting will be “Patterns of Livestock Production in the Development of Bioeconomy,” which is a hot topic worldwide and a very appropriate subject in view of the current demands for both human society and the livestock industry. Knowledge-based innovation in the livestock sector is needed to integrate animal production into the viable bioeconomy value chain and ensure food security along with improving animal health and reducing environmental impacts. The program will cover the latest findings and views on the developments in animal genetics, health and welfare, nutrition, physiology, livestock farming systems as well as cattle, horse, pig, sheep, and goat production and their allied industries.
The Annual Meeting is also a unique occasion to introduce the results of international research groups obtained within different collaboration projects (e.g., Horizon 2020 and others), update knowledge, and acquire new ideas for future collaboration. The EAAP 2017 builds on the success of previous EAAP meetings. The meeting in Tallinn will provide an exciting opportunity for the scientists working with a wide range of animal species and disciplines to meet and discuss the latest developments in animal sciences and make new contacts.
We hope that all of you will have a very productive meeting from the scientific point of view and that you will enjoy the social events and our warm and friendly atmosphere.
We look forward to seeing you in August 2017.
