What should the animal production of the future look like? In the coming decades, Europe hopes to become carbon neutral, antibiotic use should be reduced and nutrient losses minimised. These goals can only be achieved through science, innovation in new technologies and the commitment of the sector to respond to the needs and interests of consumers. That is why, on 12 and 13 May, the Institute of Agrifood Research and Technology (IRTA) is organising the "Animal Production Conference: co-creating the future of animal production" at the PortAventura Business & Events Convention Centre in Vila-Seca, Tarragona. The aim is to debate and update knowledge in the different areas of work dedicated to meeting the new challenges facing livestock farming and aquaculture, to facilitate their transition towards a more sustainable system and to incorporate the One Health approach. Seating is limited and tickets must be booked through the event’s website. The full programme of presentations can be consulted at this link.
Place: PortAventura Business & Events Convention Center
Date: Thursday 12, May2022 - 08:30h

The objective of the session is to help UAB researchers in the fields of social sciences and humanities to improve the focus of their proposals in relation to the impact and innovation part.
During the conference, the specificities of these areas will be analyzed, offering tools and advice to adapt the narrative of these disciplines to the requirements of international calls, especially Horizon Europe.
On the other hand, information on Creative Commons licenses will be offered as an alternative to protect the knowledge generated during the project. Different UAB projects from the fields of social sciences and humanities that have been successful in applying for instruments and calls for innovation and transfer (Innovation Action, ERC Proof of Concept) will be presented.
