The Future of Animal Science: BSAS Annual Conference 2017

Programme

Changing political landscapes, technological developments, climate change and increasing demand for food mean today’s animal scientists are facing some of the biggest challenges - and opportunities - in a generation.

How are they going to harness the skills and information they need to find answers? Where are the developments in technology being made to help them? And how will they get the support and funding needed to drive developments and knowledge to create sustainable livestock systems?

Join the British Society of Animal Science as it brings together experts from across the globe to try and answer these fundamental questions and others at the BSAS 2017 Annual Conference.

Held at the University of Chester on 26 and 27 April, the two-day day event will focus on what’s next for global animal science and production, looking at developments in scientific technologies as well precision agriculture techniques.

Special industry sessions will focus on the latest developments animal health, nutrition and performance, while experts will tackle a range of other subjects including the latest in equine science, welfare measures of pigs, antimicrobials, and dairy cow fertility.

BSAS to hold annual meeting in a different European city each year 

BSAS is working to drive stronger links with industry and animal scientists from across Europe following the success of the 2016 European Federation of Animal Science conference (EAAP) in Belfast.

The society plans to use its experience of hosting Europe’s largest animal science event in August to create closer ties between animal scientists, business and industry to tackle major issues facing the sector. It will also make use of its experience in event hosting to develop a series of international conferences and special events which address specific issues relating to industry.

As part of the new strategy, BSAS plans to move the location of its annual conference to a different UK city each year and to a European city every third or fourth year.  The annual international conference will be hosted in Dublin in 2018.

  

New opportunities and packages for sponsors

BSAS would like to partner with sponsors to deliver impactful conferences that tackle the issues that matter most to the sector. A mutually beneficial model has been developed where organisations can define and purchase sponsorship packages either for single years or for a number of years in advance. Discounts will be offered for organisations that make a commitment for more than one year.

At Dublin in 2018, an enhanced range of sponsorship packages have been defined to offer organisations unique ways of associating their brands or messages with different aspects of the conference. The existing range of sponsorship packages will remain available for the 2017 Annual Meeting in Chester, UK.
