Registration now open for EAAP 2016
Registration is now open for the 67th annual meeting of EAAP, Europe’s largest animal science conference.
The event, held in Belfast from 29 August to 2 September 2016, will bring over a thousand scientists, researchers and industry experts from across the world together to discuss the latest developments in animal science.
Focused around the theme sustainable livestock production, the conference will cover a host of animal science subjects, including animal genetics, nutrition, management and health and animal physiology.
Technical sessions will cover cattle, sheep and goat, pig and horse production, as well as fish, food and science relevant to industry.
There will also be several sessions focusing on the specifics of Northern Irish livestock production, with special emphasis on the country’s role at the forefront of research into using grassland for production.
EAAP local organising committee chairman Sinclair Mayne says the event offers a unique opportunity for industry and scientists to meet, exchange ideas and find ways to work together to implement new science for maximum impact.
“Here in Northern Ireland we are really excited about hosting the meeting and showcasing some of the fantastic work being done in livestock science and production in the UK and Northern Ireland in particular,” he says.
“We have secured considerable backing from the livestock industry and industry organisations, which is going to help us ensure this is going to be an unforgettable event.”
Delegates can register for the event now, with discounted fees available for those who book before 30 June 2016. EAAP members also qualify for a reduced fee.
In addition to a full conference timetable, attendees can register for a place at the conference dinner, a unique Taste of Ulster Banquet which will include fine local foods and culture, hosted at the world famous Titanic Experience Centre.
Accompanying guests can also apply for a special programme which will take them to some of Northern Ireland’s most spectacular locations, including Stormont, Belfast’s Parliament buildings, Giant’s Causeway, and the world’s oldest whiskey distillery, Bushmills.
