EAAP has been delivering programs on animal science for over 70 years. After careful planning, we are this year going to provide some outstanding webinars by inviting top speakers who will introduce subjects related to animal science and livestock industry to scientists and technicians.
The Webinar series is planned to be organized monthly to inform, update, and disseminate with high profile speakers the EAAP individual members. Apart from exceptions due to organizational issues, the EAAP Webinars will be held monthly, in the afternoon of the second Tuesday of the month.
The 13th EAAP Webinar titled Ethical dog breeding is organized in collaboration with the EAAP Study Commission on Genetics and the EAAP Ethics Working group. The Study Commission on Genetics addresses all questions regarding the genetic mechanisms underlying performance, phenotype and behaviour of animals, and also all aspects of how these trait complexes can be modified through means of breeding. The Genetic Study Commission has often strong interdisciplinary interactions with other commissions or working groups including the Ethics working created by EAAP only few years ago to foster discourse and develop resources to support integrity, responsibility, and ethics in the conduct of scientific research and practice for animals.
The first presentation will be given by Odd Vangen from “the Norwegian University of Life Sciences” (Norway) on “How can animal genetics’ theory contribute to a more sustainable and ethical dog breeding”. Peter Sandøe from “the University of Copenhagen” (Denmark) will then talk about “What is wrong with my bulldog? Drivers of and possible ways to limit problematic dog breeding”. Finally, the last talk will be titled “Ethical considerations in dog breeding and sourcing: a North American perspective” and presented by Candace Croney from the “Centre for Animal Welfare Science” (USA).
By attending EAAP Webinars, you will be able to stay on top of the latest research and gain new inspiration. Connect and network through a range of interactive presentations, discussions and workshops. Get updates on the latest results and opinions about animal science and the livestock industry. You can use this program also to teach your students.
All registered participants will receive a Zoom link a few days before the webinar. We invite you to check the spam as well. If you need support with your registration, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
