Event description

Animal Health Curious Innovation series

Animal Health Curious?

BioTechNZ is running the Animal Health Curious Innovation series across Aotearoa with the support of Callaghan Innovation.

Aotearoa New Zealand’s rich agricultural history and economy is built on primary production with animals playing an important role in our lives. Local biotech companies have also developed strengths in niche fields within the animal health and research sector.

Improving animal health requires a multi-disciplinary approach and our new event series aims to create greater connections, collaboration and increased research outcomes. This includes animal health professionals, industry, policymakers, researchers and other stakeholders.

Please bring a friend, colleague or plus one who is interested in animal health to help build our community.
