UFAW’S July meeting to be a virtual event

24 April 2020

Having had to make the difficult decision to cancel our conference Recent advances in animal welfare science VII, work has been going on behind the scenes to see if we can hold the meeting, or elements of it, as a free virtual event.

Having spoken with our speakers and poster presenters, it is obvious that there is a willingness and a real determination to see if we can hold the event online.  To this end, we are working hard to make this happen and will be looking to run this in the week commencing Monday 29th June, hopefully on or around the original date of Wednesday 1st July.

We would like to thank everyone for their support and understanding, especially those delegates who had already registered to attend - a considerable number of whom donated their registration fee to UFAW.  As a charity, we rely on the support of members and donors in order to be able to continue our work.

As well as being a key part of our charitable activities, meetings and conferences play a vital role in sharing knowledge and best practice to benefit and improve animal welfare as well as bringing together the scientific and academic community in shared common aims and goals.  As soon as we are able to announce further details, including how you can access the event, we will do so on our website and social media channels Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
