SAPHIR and Feed-a-Gene joint session at EAAP 2018
The 69th Annual Meeting of the European Federation of Animal Science will be held in the Valamar Resort in Dubrovnik, Croatia, from 27-31 August 2018. EAAP provides insights into the latest research results from different areas of animal science. Attending the annual conference is an unique opportunity for scientists and industry to meet and acquire new knowledge and to exchange experiences.
On Thursday 30th of August, SAPHIR and Feed-a-Gene will organize a joint session:
'Multi-disciplinary approaches for improving sustainable livestock production: research needs, opportunities and difficulties'
During this session several speakers from both consortia will present their research, followed by presentations from stakeholders about innovations and expectations. Panel discussions will cover opportunities and difficulties of multi-disciplinary and multi-actor approach researches and user application needs.
*In order to attend this session it's necessary to register for the EAAP conference.
