OtherWelcome to EAAP 2014 in Copenhagen – Denmark The Danish organizing Committee is pleased to welcome you to the 65th Annual Meeting of the EAAP. The congress is a unique opportunity for industry and scientists to meet and acquire new knowledge as well as to exchange experiences within animal science. The meeting will take place in Copenhagen from 25th to 29th August 2014. Last time Denmark hosted the EAAP meeting was in Aarhus in 1993.

A main theme of the meeting will be “Quality in Animal Production” dealing with product quality as well as resource efficiency, sustainability, animal welfare and agro-ecology. The program will cover various thematic topics such as animal genetics, animal nutrition, animal management and health and animal physiology and also cattle, sheep and goat, pig and horse production and livestock farming systems.

We expect approximately 1,300 delegates from more than 40 countries.

During the meeting, participants will have the opportunity to attend a number of selected oral presentations and study posters from leading scientists from all over the world. Workshops will be arranged with presentations and discussions of recent research contributing to sustainable and responsible livestock farming. Results from successful project cooperations between international research groups will be presented. Focus will also be put on knowledge exchange towards innovation.

We foresee a fruitful scientific meeting which also allows you to enjoy Copenhagen with its many cultural attractions and social events. We look forward to welcome you in wonderful Copenhagen in August 2014 for a highly professional, successful and enjoyable event.
