EAAP, Tallinn, Estonia
28th Aug 2017 - 1st Sep 2017
EAAP (http://www.eaap.org/) is the acronym that stands for the European Federation for Animal Science, founded in 1949. EAAP is the international non-governmental organisation aiming to improve the knowledge and the dissemination of research results of domestic animal farming. The federation, the only European animal science organisation, has 34 country members and around 2500 individual members. EAAP is also co-founder and co-owner of the academic journal “Animal”, published by the Cambridge University Press.
The 68th Annual Meeting of the European Federation of Animal Science (EAAP) will take place from 28 August to 1 September in Tallinn, Estonia. The main theme of the meeting is Patterns of Livestock Production in the Development of Bioeconomy.
The EAAP annual meeting is among the largest animal science meeting in the world and certainly the largest in Europe. Our expectation for the 2017 annual meeting that will be held this year in Tallin, Estonia, is to have around 1100 participants and more than 50% of them usually attend the Discover Plenary Session.

The EAAP also has 11 Study Commissions and 6 working groups. Last year the EAAP established a working group (WG) on animal behaviour chaired by Laura Boyle and linked to the Health and Welfare (H&W) Commission. The aim of the WG is not only to preserve the important link between animal behaviour and animal welfare science but also to foster links with other disciplines in the animal sciences. Many of these disciplines are represented in the scientific study commissions of the EAAP. Hence the aim of the EAAP working group (WG) on animal behaviour (AB) is to promote the use of ethological measures in animal science. To this end there will be a dedicated animal behaviour session at all future EAAP meetings jointly co-ordinated by the animal behaviour WG and another Study Commission. At this year's meeting in Tallinn we are teaming up with the genetics commission for a session on the genetics of farm animal behaviour.
