"Shaping the future of livestock farming through research" conference

June 13

The event will take place on 13 June 2022 (Monday), with simultaneous English-French and French-English interpretation, limited physical presence (in Paris) and on-line participation.

The conference will put into perspective the expectations of European citizens and of present and future generations, and take a look at the answers that today's research can provide for tomorrow's livestock farming.

The first of these issues concerns the welfare of animals and of the humans who raise them, and will be addressed through the "One Welfare" concept. The challenges of a comprehensive "One Health" initiative, which takes into account the health of consumers as well as of animals and the environment, will be addressed from the standpoint of agro-ecology and climate change.

The contribution of the European Union to these challenges through the on-going construction of the "animal health and welfare partnership" (under Horizon Europe, the EU framework programme for research and innovation, 2021-2027) will be presented.

What kinds of research are needed to support livestock farming in harmony with the environment and the well-being of animals and humans, within an agricultural framework that is a return to local, circular and sustainable agriculture, and one that requires less antimicrobials? What animal genetics are suited to these new ways of farming?

Finally, it will address the question: What types of training are needed to successfully transfer research results to farms in transition?

The conference, which will bring together researchers, decision-makers and actors from the livestock farming world, among others, will end with a round-table discussion in which stakeholders in livestock farming will discuss their vision and their thoughts on all of these research issues.
