For the first time, the Free University of Bolzano and Eurac Research Center are promoting a symposium exclusively focused on the topic of mountain livestock farming. The symposium is organized in collaboration with the European Federation of Animal Science (EAAP), Fibl Switzerland and the University of Padova. A broad range of topics related to livestock farming in mountain areas is covered during the meeting. Thereby, research contributions of all disciplines relevant to mountain livestock farms are welcome. This includes animal husbandry and breeding, landscape conservation, economics, environmental science and social science works, to name only a few. The gathering of participants from different regions across Europe is expected to stimulate the exchange of knowledge, promote innovation and thus enabling the expertise to be bundled and implemented on a local level throughout Europe.

Researchers from all over Europe are invited to submit and present their work at the symposium and to discuss the future of mountain farming. Please find the important dates below. Further information as well as access to the submission platform and registration is available under http://mountainlivestock.eu
