The scientific program will be built with WPSA working groups from European Federation and Asia-Pacific Federation. The programme will schedule afternoon sessions integrating various approaches to address a complex challenge, such as for instance “health, welfare and breeding” or “nutrition, efficiency and environmental impact” or “technology for new Poultry food product”.
Students are welcome at WPC2020, they are our future! The Youth programme will offer the opportunity to brainstorm about poultry science, to show the specific features of the poultry industry, to demonstrate its potential and to strengthen its attractiveness for young students.
We will prepare an attractive social program based on the French historical and gastronomic culture to foster friendly relationships between attendees, completing one of the main features of WPSA.
The WPSA France has a long tradition of hosting international poultry conferences starting with the World’s Poultry Congress in 1951, followed by two European Poultry Conferences in 1986 and 2010, and more than ten meetings of WPSA working groups since 1983, dealing with nutrition, reproduction, economics, welfare, egg and meat quality. Members of WPSA France participate actively in all the working groups of the European Federation.
The French branch gathers more than 250 members and its board illustrates the spirit of WPSA by including members from higher education and research institutions, from technical poultry institutes as well as from the industry sector, in a balanced manner.
