Call for papers: Interdisciplinary Approaches to Antimicrobial Use in Livestock Farming
The research topic "Interdisciplinary approaches to antimicrobial use in livestock farming" in Frontiers in Vet science, seeks to create bridges between qualitative veterinary research on the one hand, and social sciences on the other. The objective is to offer a true interdisciplinary dialogue which takes each side seriously.
Proposals are welcomed which rely on such an interdisciplinary dialogue and try to grasp both individual, collective and structural components of AMU. For more information visit the Frontiers website.
The International Society for Economics and Social Sciences of Animal Health (ISESSAH) was formed at the final NEAT-meeting with the intention to carry on the work of NEAT and to include the field of social science in veterinary related issues. ISESSAH aims to improve animal health and welfare policies, programme and projects through more nuanced use of concepts and tools available in economics and social science disciplines. In the process it will provide opportunities for animal health professionals globally to achieve wider societal benefits from animals in society.
The ISESSAH 2020 conference will be take place on 14 – 16th May 2020 in Copenhagen. The main topic will be “Economics and social science applied to animal health surveillance“. The deadline for the submission of abstracts is 10th of December 2019. For more information, please visit the website.
ROADMAP participated in Fitter LIvestock Farming workshop
ROADMAP participated in the FitterLivestockFarming Workshop about “What R&I can deliver to support climate mitigation and adaptation in livestockfarming on 6 November 2019 in Brussels, Belgium. The workshop was jointly organized by Animal Task Force (ATF) and Common Dissemination Booster (CDB) cluster projects. Marie-Helene Pinard talked about the aim of the ROADMAP project and mentioned that linking health and management data with the environmental data is crucial. This workshop brought together animal scientists with livestock professionals and advisors, as well as researchers, non-profit & societal organisations and industry representatives. By joining this workshop, ROADMAP had a chance to meet the stakeholders in the early project’s lifetime.
