Theme of meeting


The theme of the meeting was “Animal Welfare Science and Society”. This year the AWRN conference focuses on the complex relationship and interactions between animal welfare science and society. It explores and reflects on the current relationship, how it might develop to better serve the wellbeing of animals and people and the implications for research and policy.
