Early Career Knowledge Transfer Partnership

11 Nov 2021

Are you a young farmer or involved in a farming organisation? Do you need a speaker for a discussion group or would just like to know the latest research updates in livestock production? Then why don't you get in touch with the early career council at the BSAS who can offer a number of young specialists in a wide range of animal science topics and can help you engage with research with their new knowledge transfer partnership!

Speaking about the Knowledge Transfer Partnership, ECC member and Teagasc Walsh Scholar PhD student Paul Smith said “The Knowledge Transfer Partnership offers a mutually beneficial collaboration for all involved. Through the Knowledge Transfer Partnership, young farmer organisations will be granted access to the most up to date scientific information delivered by some of the UK and Ireland’s top early career animal scientists. For our early career members in BSAS, the partnership offers an excellent opportunity to gain invaluable industry experience. It is a win-win for all involved.”.

Lucy Ross, Former ECC Co-Chair and PhD student at University of Nottingham, also commented that "This is a really exciting launch for the Early Career Council at BSAS to establish its own relationships with industry. The opportunity for our early career members to present to an industry audience and be involved in their discussions is extremely useful. As well as receiving recent science updates, it offers younger members of farming organisations a chance to speak to the ECC about their role in animal science and gain an insight into animal science as a career".
