On behalf of the Organizational Committee, we invite you to meet during the First European Congress on Applied Animal Sciences. We will promote research, discussion, debate and dissemination of high quality and relevant animal science findings amongst the scientific communities, the livestock industry, civil society and groups with interests in livestock production. The conference will debate the role that animals play on the wider stage of dietary, environmental and mental health. At venue attendees will be able to get up close to the action, while also being able to seamlessly participate and network with delegates and speakers from across the Europe.
Who should attend?
You should attend the ECAAS 2022 if you are:
• interested or involved in animal science, through industry or academia
• are a veterinarian in the field of herd health promotion, animal reproductive management or assisted reproduction
• work with companion animals or livestock
• are involved in the care, sustainability and utility of animals
• want to be part of the discussion on how animals impact human and planetary health in terms of our current and future well-being and sustainability
We are waiting for you!

Panel I will focus on animal health, disease, and welfare and will integrate the areas of animal biology and ecology with comparative and veterinary science. You will learn about the science that underpins the biology of animal health and disease, including physiology, molecular biology, infectious agents, and animal welfare.
Panel II will focus on bringing up the issues about improving livestock and food production, and on the social and economic issues that influence primary producers. You will learn what actions to take to ensure the safety and health of consumers. You will learn the latest knowledge in the field of animal production.
Panel III will focus on the latest knowledge in the field of reproductive physiology and endocrinology, reproductive cycles, natural and artificial control of reproduction, preservation and use of gametes and embryos, pregnancy and gestation, infertility and sterility, diagnostic and therapeutic techniques. You will learn how to improve the management of an animal species or population with regard to its fertility or reproductive efficiency.
