CIEL | Blog: Animal AgTech Innovation Summit

Dr Bethan John
World Fisheries and Aquaculture 2022

In early October, Dr Bethan John, CIEL’s Animal Health Project Officer, presented at the Animal AgTech Innovation Summit. Over 260 delegates gathered in Amsterdam and joined online from 35 countries, bringing together all parts of the value chain. The conference explored all aspects of animal science innovation, and the wide range of topics attracted delegates from all over the world.

During a session titled ‘Building Resilience: Preventing and Preparing for Avian Flu’, CIEL showcased our ‘Living with the Risk of Bird Flu’ Thought Leadership Report. Dr John highlighted key aspects of the report, including the challenges associated with disease prevention and control. She also shared the opportunities for innovation as we navigate this new era of living with a persistent risk of disease outbreaks in both commercial and backyard poultry flocks.
