Seminar: Applied Ethology and Animal Welfare

Our bi-weekly seminar provides opportunities for students and postdocs of our group as well as for external students of applied ethology and animal welfare to present and discuss their latest research ideas and findings. The seminar also includes topical presentations by PhD students, and about every other month we host an invited guest speaker from around the world. Everybody interested in applied ethology and animal welfare research is welcome to attend.

  • Time: Thursdays at 16:15
