ATF events in 2022
In 2022, 2 events will be organised on the topic "Livestock emissions and the COP26 targets":
  • the 2nd one-day symposium of the ATF and the EAAP Commission on Livestock Farming Systems, September 05th, 2022, Porto, Portugal
  • the 12th ATF seminar, November 17th, 2022 - Brussels, Belgium
 

        

Programme of the 2nd ATF-LFS one-day symposium
Since 2013, the ATF-EAAP 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 session.
In 2021, the EAAP Livestock Farming Systems Study Commission and the ATF Special Session have joined into a one-day symposium. In 2022, they have decided to continue the collaboration.
 
Aim
This symposium 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.

The outcomes of the session will be discussed with a large panel of European stakeholders during the 12th ATF seminar, in Brussels, on 17 November 2022.
