The 70th Annual Meeting of the European Federation of Animal Science (EAAP) will take place in the historic and lively city of Ghent from 26- 30 of August 2019.
The main theme of the meeting is ‘Animal farming for a healthy world’ and deals with topics such as resource efficiency, animal welfare, diversification, agro-ecology, climate change and product quality.

FEFANA, ILVO and the EAAP have co-organised a full day session for the 28 August entitled:
“The role of animal nutrition and in particular specialty feed ingredients in tackling societal challenges”
The one-day meeting will be composed of two complementary sessions, with the morning session focusing on the state of science in the realm of specialty feed ingredients and society’s concerns; and the afternoon session dedicated to presenting innovative solutions and success stories.
Prof. Em. Dr Johanna Fink-Gremmels, will chair the event.
The EAAP Congress provides a platform for scientists and industry experts to meet and acquire new knowledge and to exchange experiences about the latest research results from many areas of animal science. The Annual Meeting gives an opportunity for the application of new ideas in practice through many parallel sessions, a plenary meeting, poster presentations, and discussions about scientific achievements in livestock production.
