Alice Scaillierez received the Best Oral Presentation Award for her presentation entitled "Can artificial light enlighten pig welfare?" in the online WAFL Conference 2021

Alice presented her research in the parallel session on Improving animal welfare at the 8th International conference on the assessment of animal welfare at farm and group level. Her PhD-research is part of the Enlighted pigs project.

The jury was looking at the accessibility of the talks, that are often about complex topics and should be presented in a concise manner. They concluded that this topic was often overlooked, but Alice managed to summarize the issues in a clear story with nice images and figures to accompany the narrative and understanding.

For this online edition from 16 to 19 August, that was hosted by Teagasc and University College Cork, 350 participants shared their view and their work on animal welfare.
