The European Federation of Animal Science (EAAP) is pleased to announce collaboration with The Journal of Insects as Food and Feed (JIFF) published by Wageningen Academic Publishers.

Last August, at the annual meeting in Belfast (UK), EAAP announced a new Study Commission on Insects. .

The Study Commission on Insects will organise sessions at the annual EAAP meetings, and the resulting peer-reviewed scientific output will be published in JIFF. The first sessions organised by the Study Commission on Insects will be held during the 2017 EAAP annual meeting in Tallinn, Estonia, 28 August – 1 September.

“Growing of insects can be fully considered now as mini-livestock”, says Teun Veldkamp. “It requires multi-disciplinary approaches and EAAP as well as JIFF are essential institutions for science and industry.”

The UEECA (Unión de Entidades Españolas de Ciencia Animal) is a Spanish union of scientific societies involved in animal science that aims at a better representation of Spanish animal scientists in the EAAP. With that objective, in 2015 the UEECA provided 4 scholarships for attending the 2016 EAAP meeting in Belfast, with similar rules to those provided by EAAP (except for the age limit, which was substituted by being a PhD student, and the need to be part of one of the Societies in the union).

Following this initiative, this year we have open a call for 4 scholarships to attend the 2017 EAAP Annual Meeting in Tallinn (info available at The deadlines for submission are earlier than those of the EAAP (Dec. 15), and we will have the results by Feb. 15.
