Our aims are to bring together the UK animal welfare research community, researchers in related areas, and stakeholders with interests in animal welfare, to identify important research topics, increase collaboration, and support and encourage research activities.
We also seek to encourage opportunities for supporting and mentoring early career researchers, to identify research gaps, openings and new funding possibilities, to provide a forum for sharing and disseminating information, and to promote the strength and successes of animal welfare research as a discipline that spans from basic science to implementation.
The AWRN is overseen by a Coordinating Group and its aims are achieved via a range of face-to-face and virtual activities organised and driven by Network members.BECOME A MEMBER
