Do you have an innovative idea, concept or product that can help to improve animal welfare? Present your innovation to scientists and industry at the innovation day of the international Conference on the Assessment of Animal Welfare at Farm and Group Level (WAFL 2017) on the 5th of September in Ede. The ideas can vary from fresh, innovative ideas to new housing concepts, new management innovations or intelligent monitoring devices that have been developed recently.

All promising innovations will get a stand at the ‘Innovation Market’ at which posters or objects can be presented or are invited for a plenary ‘Pitch’ in the morning. The audience will discuss & decide which innovation takes animal welfare forward the most and wins the innovation award!
