The 13th FELASA Congress is the occasion for the FA1301 COST Action i. to present the results of our first two years of initiatives and efforts dealing with such a significant change in the way we deal with Cephalopods as Laboratory Animals, ii. to discuss, within the appropriate forum, the best approach to be followed to continue to enhance our presence in this international scenario, iii. to facilitate interaction with bodies and possible sponsors and exhibitors to increase the potential of cephalopod science, iv. to finalize the recent efforts in the standardization of the care and management of cephalopods in research.
CephsInAne-Action - WG3 meeting
CephsInAne-Action, a WG3 meeting
Napoli – Italy; September 2-3, 2016
A COST Action FA1301 WG3 meeting with contribution of WG4 and WG5 participants facing important physiology and neuroscience questions, relevant to our Action. A discussion focused on topics relevant to the use of anaesthesia in experimental procedures in relation with the requirements of the Directive 2010/63/EU.
Outcomes from the meeting will be published in the format of a meeting report.
The COST Action FA1301 will join Aquaculture Europe2016, the international conference organised by the European Aquaculture Society (EAS) with the theme “Food for Thought”. This is the second time that CephsInAction will meet the EAS meeting.
Aim of the WG meeting is to facilitate discussion on approaches, strategies and possible collaborations for contributing to the solution of some bottlenecks that still appear to exist for the cephalopods aquaculture. Both a symposium within the main AE2016 Conference, and a satellite WG1 meeting will be organized.
CephsInAction: working for welfare and health of cephalopods
Final location to be established; originally planned for July 28-30, 2016 but postponed to a later date
A COST Action FA1301-WG4 meeting dedicated to the preparation of strategic publications and deliverables aimed to facilitate guidance in monitoring, management and assessment of cephalopods’ welfare including their health status. The meeting will be restricted to key representatives of CephsInAction and other international experts with the aim of discussing to facilitate the expected outcome.
CephsInAction & CIAC Meeting – Cephalopod Science from Biology to Welfare
Heraklion – Greece; March 28-31, 2017
The Annual Scientific Conference of COST Action FA1301 will merge CIAC (Cephalopod International Advisory Council) community with the aim of broaden the scientific outcomes, and increase the chances to develop an ‘integrated’ larger cephalopod science community.
The participation and contribution of the Young Cephalopod Researchers group will be facilitated, by ad hoc actions. Outreach activities will also be included in the main program.
The meeting will start in the morning of September 13th and will end in the early afternoon of September 15th, 2017; the afternoon session is reserved to the FA1301 MC Members (MC Meeting).
Venue of this meeting will be the Lifecourse Institute in the campus of the National University of Ireland, Galway – Ireland (NUI Galway).
The agenda of this 2.5 days meeting will be announced soon. This event is aimed at enhancing networking initiatives and explore future scientific outcomes, thus to further contribute to the development on an integrated larger cephalopod science community. Scope of this meeting will be to summarize the results and achievements of this FA1301 COST Action, to increase and further facilitate collaborative work and networking among all participants, to identify and possibly plan future research priorities by preparation of a whitepaper.
We aim to facilitate the contribution and future commitment of young-early career researchers.
