International Symposium on Animal Bioscience 2021

November 25, 2021

On November 3, Okayama University Graduate School of Environmental and Life Science and Faculty of Agriculture held the “International Symposium on Animal Bioscience 2021” in collaboration with Vietnam’s Nong Lam University Faculty of Animal Science and Veterinary Medicine. On-site venues were set up at both universities, and the latest topics of recent advances in animal bioscience were discussed through a hybrid of on-site and online. A total of 333 people registered for the symposium, with over 270 people joining the event online for the opening and plenary sessions.

The Graduate School of Environmental and Life Science and the Faculty of Agriculture at Okayama University have contributed to global human resource development by accepting large numbers of international students from Asia and Africa. In addition, many of the Japanese students studying at these faculties have a strong desire for international experiences and advocate for programs encouraging international activities. At the 2021 symposium, 22 graduate students from Okayama University gave oral presentations. Even for students who have experience presenting at domestic conferences, the symposium proved to be an excellent opportunity to reaffirm their interests and ambitions.

Thanks to recent conferencing tools and platforms, it has become easier to hold events online and hybrid. We will continue the symposium with more collaborating overseas universities to further promote global human resource development.
