Being an audacious and courageous people, Portuguese never give up, and so, we are delighted to inform you we will have the 73rd Annual Meeting of EAAP in Porto. On September 5th to 8th, 2022!

This pandemic showed us that our sector never stops, that animal production continues to put food in people’s houses, and that we are an essential part of society. In 2022 we will surely be under the economic and societal consequences of this pandemic, and the climate urgency makes challenges in Animal Science more urgent than ever, and we, as its scientific community will be on top and ahead of them.

In this way, the program will cover various areas of knowledge, such as nutrition, genetics, physiology, animal health and welfare, livestock farmingsystems, precision livestock farming, insect production and use, cattle, horse pig, sheep and goat production. These topics will be filled with innovation and recent scientific results leading animal production in the right path.

The European Federation of Animal Science (EAAP) Annual Meeting gives an opportunity for the application of new ideas in practice through many parallel sessions, a plenary meeting, poster presentations, and discussions about scientific achievements in livestock production all around the world.

This is, as you know, is a privileged discussion forum where the research community meets with the industry, to discuss and plan for how to address the multiple challenges that animal science sector has to cope with in the upcoming years.

All these activities make the EAAP one of the largest animal science congresses in the world.
As a community, we will have to make up for the lost opportunity to be face to face networking this year. We hope to welcome a new record braking number of participants worldwide.

To make up for it, we will organize a vast excellent, and of course unforgettable, social program throughout the week, starting with the welcome ceremony, a typical Portuguese night, a gala dinner, as well as great technical tours and an exquisite accompanying persons program.
