FEFAC/FEFANA Virtual Conference: Animal Health and Welfare: what role for Animal Nutrition?
The event, organised with EURACTIV, takes place on Wednesday, 19 May 2021, 09:30 – 11:00 CET.
We are highly pleased to confirm the participation of European Commissioner Stella Kyriakides who will open the event with a video statement.

International Symposium on Sustainable Animal Production and Health, 28 June - 2 July 2021, Vienna
The objectives of the symposium are to provide information and share knowledge on modern and novel technologies in animal production and health, and their application to support sustainable livestock production systems. Besides, to identify capacity and research needs and to address gaps and new opportunities for the effective transfer of nuclear and nuclear derived/related technologies and building capacities for ameliorating or solving factors that are limiting livestock productivity and causing animal diseases.
The symposium welcomes scientists, academics, research managers, laboratory personnel, policy-makers from governmental and non-governmental organizations, private sector actors and representatives of international and national donor agencies, foundations and trusts.
Feed2021, 23-24 June 2021, Vienna
Feed2021 is the seventh in a series of conferences initiated by the European Union’s leading reference laboratories and research institutions in animal feed.
As seen in 2020 the availability of sufficient and safe feedingstuff is still a key challenge in modern agriculture. While the topic of undesirable substances in feed remains a major issue, the globalisation of the feed business has further reinforced the need for efficient tools for traceability of feed ingredients. Moreover, the constantly increasing demand for food from animal origin, along with limited resources triggers the need for evaluating new sources of feed ingredients such as insects and efficient feed production. Additionally, the impact of climate change on feed production should be also taken into account. Keeping the feed safe and sustainable therefore requires a multidisciplinary approach, bringing together all stakeholders, including the industry.
