SAPHIR Stakeholder Meeting on Healthy Livestock
SAPHIR's 1st Stakeholder Meeting was organised as a Satellite Workshop at the 67th Annual Meeting of the European Federation of Animal Science on 31 August 2016, in Belfast, UK.
The workshop provided a platform for the scientists to meet with food animal stakeholders, policy makers, food industry and consumer representatives to discuss the advances made in the field of livestock vaccine strategies in light of the SAPHIR project, and the needs and interests of stakeholders.
The aim was to facilitate interactions between academics and stakeholders and increase mutual awareness.
