Scope of symposium

Previous conferences have been held every third year, in France, Denmark, Poland, The Netherlands, Germany, France, Sweden, Canada, Denmark, Spain, USA and Poland and in 2018 in Australia. This symposium is currently considered the most important global scientific event in the fields of pig nutrition and gut physiology, covering endocrinology, immunology, microbiology and health, as well as the use of the pig as a model for human digestive physiology.

Future pig production faces major challenges, related to availability of resources, climatic impact and human and animal health. We are strongly committed to bring together at DPP2022, science and industry in formal sessions and informal networks to learn from latest scientific developments, discuss their potential contribution to a sustainable future and promote academia-industry partnerships.
