EAAP has extensive experience in the promotion of scientific research and its dissemination and application into practice. EAAP has also a long tradition in the development of dissemination tools, training activities for scientists and the organization of international conferences. Moreover, EAAP has extensive experience in publishing both at scientific and technical level. EAAP is responsible for communication, dissemination and knowledge transfer activities within several EU-funded projects – since FP6 – and technical themes. By developing online channels such as websites and social media, EAAP facilitates access to data and knowledge for scientists and technicians from all over Europe and the rest of the world.
EAAP has a large database with more than 6000 contacts of scientists and research institutes active in the field of animal science, coming from European and Mediterranean countries. EAAP has also 11 Study Commissions and several Working Groups focused on analysing and managing issues related to different aspects of animal science and the livestock industry.
