Welcome to the 24th ASPA Congress

Animal Science and Society Concerns

Dear Colleagues and ASPA Members,

After 34 years, the ASPA Congress returns to Padova, one of the oldest Universities in the world, which will celebrate its 800th anniversary in 2022.

Three Departments at the University of Padova (BCA, Comparative Biomedicine and Food Science; DAFNAE, Agronomy, Food, Natural resources, Animals and Environment; MAPS, Animal Medicine, Production and Health), with their 31 ASPA members, have come together to organize this special event. The Congress will become a real opportunity for our research community to exchange ideas and experiences on society concerns regarding animal production and products. We will also have the chance to listen and discuss these issues with the support of leading international researchers.

Padova welcomes you with its beautiful squares and monuments, Giotto's frescoes, the Palazzo del Bo and the renewed Botanical Garden, which are UNESCO world heritages sites.

Enjoy the city and welcome to the 24th ASPA Congress "Animal Science and Society Concerns"!
