Seminar "The Digital (R)evolution? Technologies to power animal facilities and science"


Animal facilities are becoming more and more complex microcosms where multiple interests are deeply interrelated; the facility management must comply with the legal requirements, apply the best practice in animal maintenance and be tuned with the needs of scientific research. All these aspects represent a challenge for the operational efficiency of the facility and require a combination of technologies for supporting and optimizing the well-functioning of all the components involved.

The Digital Revolution refers to the digital technology as the current trend of automation and data exchange that meet new challenges and strengthen the modernization of research institutes, including animal facilities.

The seminar is addressed to facility managers, veterinarians, scientists, IT specialists and to all those who have an open mind on innovative technologies and look at them as opportunities to improve their working experience.


This seminar will illustrate fields of application of innovative technologies as well as their benefits in term of operational efficiency and animal welfare through the review of their potential added values. What are the needs of the researchers and how digital technologies might help to improve the quality and quantity of scientific outputs will also be discussed. How to design, implement and support an IT infrastructure in a complex research context, combining massive data generation, real time accessibility and security, will be also tackled together with the new skills and training requirements of personnel using such technologies.

The seminar’s objective is to offer the participants an overview of innovative technologies applicable to animal facilities and research institutes. Speakers who have already adopted such technologies will share and discuss their own experiences and achievements.
