Programme of the 7th ATF-EAAP Special session
Since 2013, the EAAP & ATF Special Session during the EAAP Annual Meeting aims to bring together animal science with practice of animal production and connect researchers, policy-makers, industry representatives and societal organisations. Every year, a different topic is addressed during this half-day session.
 
Format of the EAAP & ATF Special Session
The session would like to engage discussion with farmers, industries, scientists, policy makers and with the society. Most important findings will be discussed with a panel. The outcomes of the session will be discussed with a large panel of European stakeholders during the ATF seminar, in Brussels, on 6th Nov. 2019.
 
Aim
The Special Session aims to contribute to:
  • Engage a dialogue with various stakeholders;
  • Address how research and innovation can support the livestock sector;
  • Provide input to European research and innovation agendas and to public policies to secure Europe’s role as a leading global provider of safe and healthy animal-derived products;
  • Support knowledge development and innovation;
  • Foster ownership by farmers and industries.
