70th Anniversary

Dear EAAP members,

since 1949, EAAP has represented an essential point of reference for animal science dissemination. During these 70 years the members of our community have strongly contributed to develop the important role of the organisation through several events, publications and activities. We would like to highlight the most relevant steps in EAAP’S history in a short video created by our staff.

At the end of the video you will find a drawing representing how we imagine EAAP’s future. We have launched a contest and you can contribute by sending us a drawing or a short description (max 1000 characters space included). If you feel inspired why don’t you send us your ideas?

The winner will be announced during the EAAP Annual Meeting in Ghent at the Welcome Ceremony, receiving a special gift.

Please submit your ideas to eaap@eaap.org. The deadline is August 23th.
