FESASS symposium on 4/5 December 2023 in Rome
The FESASS Conference 2023 will take place on 4 and 5 December 2023 in Rome (Italy). It is intended as a contribution to the implementation of the European Farm to Fork Strategy (F2f). In this context, it is crucial to put animal health back at the centre of reflections and actions, as numerous health threats are developing at the gates and on the territory of the European Union. It is a question of working on the strong links between animal health and the new challenges of sustainability, animal welfare and the quality of our products.
The organisation of the conference, which had already been announced by the FESASS Vice-President for Quality and Food Safety, Mr Vito AMENDOLARA, at the FESASS meeting in Elvas, Portugal, in autumn 2019, has been delayed due to the COVID pandemic. However, its objective remains unchanged and is still highly relevant for the European livestock industry.
The decision to hold this meeting in Rome aims, on the one hand, to get to know Italian livestock farming, the health organisation of this country and the activities of the Italian livestock breeders' association AIA. In particular, there will be direct dialogue with Italian breeders and veterinarians to discuss the system developed there to monitor and promote the quality of animal products.
Given the complexity of the topics discussed, the first day will focus on the technical aspects and the second day on the more political dimension of the relationship between animal health and the challenges described above.
The conference venue is Palazzo Rospigliosi, which is also the headquarters of the Italian farmers' organisation COLDIRETTI. Simultaneous translation will be provided in English, French, Italian and Spanish.
