One-day symposium - EAAP 2021: Mixed crop/livestock systems - do they deliver more resilient food systems?
In 2021, the EAAP Livestock Farming Systems Study Commission and the ATF Special Session have joined into a one-day symposium.
 
Format of the symposium
The symposium 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, in November 2021.
 
Aim
This one-day 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.
