Third Welfare Science Conference Scheduled

10 April 2012

UK - This year’s UFAW Animal Welfare Conference will be held in York on 21 June.

The field of animal welfare is a cross-disciplinary area of study that is attracting increasing interest and funding and being asked to guide and inform legislation and practice relating to the use of animals, says the organisation, Universities Federation for Animal Welfare (UFAW). Much, however, still remains to be understood.

As part of its on-going commitment to improving the way we understand and care for animals, UFAW is holding the third of a series of one–day conferences on ‘Recent advances in animal welfare science’ on 21 June 2012 at York Merchant Adventurers’ Hall. This regular meeting aims to provide a forum at which the broad community of scientists, veterinary surgeons and others concerned with animal welfare can come together to share knowledge and practice, discuss advances and exchange views.
