Welcome!


It is with great pleasure that we announce the 5th International Conference on Responsible Use of Antibiotics in Animals, to be held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, 5-7 October 2020.

The international conference series on Responsible Use of Antibiotics in Animals started in 2005 as an initiative independent from commercial companies, official organisations or authorities. The objectives of the initiative are:
  • to give an overview of the ongoing activities with respect to the issue of antibiotic use in animals and antimicrobial resistance in animals and humans
  • to learn about the expectations of different parties involved
  • to focus on sustainable solutions for disease prevention
  • to identify the areas which need further research and action with respect to the current scientific knowledge and political expectations.

During the years, the conference series has strengthened its position as an important meeting point for the animal health industry and the medical community; all users of antibiotics in animals, such as veterinarians, animal feed producers, livestock and aquaculture producers, and nutritionists; food processors and manufacturers, and retailers; policy makers and regulatory agencies; researchers in universities and research institutes; and others with an interest in antibiotics and antimicrobial resistance, such as educators, agricultural extension staff, consultants, and consumer organisations.

Key themes of the 5th International Conference on Responsible Use of Antibiotics in Animals include:

  • integration of animal, human and environmental health
  • present and future approaches at global and national levels
  • engagement of stakeholders
  • innovations in disease prevention and detection, including gut health, alternatives to antibiotics, rapid diagnostics, etc.
  • new areas to explore towards sustainable solutions.

The Advisory Board members of the 5th International Conference on Responsible Use of Antibiotics in Animals are looking forward to meeting you again at Amsterdam!
