Dutch and Polish research institutes sign Expression of Interest
On September 1, 2015, an Expression of Interest concerning the cooperation in the field of animal sciences has been signed between the Dutch and Polish scientific organizations.
The signing partners are: The Animal Sciences Group of Wageningen University and Research Centre, the Institute of Genetics and Animal Breeding of the Polish Academy of Sciences, the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science of the Poznań University of Life Sciences, and the National Veterinary Research Institute in Puławy.
A ceremonial signing took place a la marge of the meeting ‘Connecting Science and Industry’ organized together by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Warsaw and the Institute of Genetics and Animal Breeding of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
The Expression of Interest articulates the areas for cooperation related to animal technology and science that are of mutual interest. The priorities include breeding, nutrition, animal health and welfare, livestock systems and precision farming. Both the Dutch and the Polish sides share the ambition of promoting advancement of knowledge, science and economic and social development. Further, the global context and public concerns in both countries, as well as the dynamics of the relationship between the agricultural sciences in Poland and in the Netherlands, create a highly favourable environment to begin fostering a closer cooperation in research. More detailed work program will be established as a further step.
