Deadline for Comment on Global Strategic Directions for Meat Science Extended

Extended call for input on global strategic directions for meat science

The Australian Meat Processor Corporation (AMPC) has issued an international invitation to animal and meat scientists to participate in an initiative to identify strategic research streams for the next decade; foster development of young meat scientists; and facilitate a new research model linking global expertise within collaborative research projects.

Deadline for comment is June 30.

Contributors are asked to answer two questions: 1)What are the key challenges and opportunities for meat science toward 2030, and 2) What are best methods for harnessing meat science and related expertise into the future?  These topics are of great importance for the future of livestock production, and will benefit from discussion among diverse, international contributors.

Additional information, including a background paper and submission site for comments can be found at this link.
