The EAAP Congress Organization

Represents the interests of all Animal Production technicians that develop their professional activity in animal production and animal science.

APEZ was formed in 1988 from the need of organization amongst animal production professionals.

APEZ is a sister association of the Brazilian Association of Zootechnists (ABZ).

The National Institute for Agrarian and Veterinarian Research I. P. (INIAV) is the State Laboratory of the Ministry of Agriculture that develops research activities in the agricultural and veterinary fields and provides official services to farmers and industry, public and private entities.

INIAV promotes research, experimentation and demonstration, according to the public policies, in order to ensure the technical and scientific support needed for the development, innovation and competitiveness in the areas of forestry, crop's protection, food technology, food safety and animal health and production.

The preservation and management of the plant and animal germplasm's databases are also INIAV's responsibilities. INIAV has a network of 15 centers located throughout Portugal, in close proximity to the various sectors of animal and agriculture production.
