About ESPN2025

Anyone interested in sharing the newest scientific results in the field of Poultry Nutrition, with particular focus on Nutrition for Sustainability, Feeding Strategies Dealing With Climate Changes, Poultry Gut Health, Alternative Protein Sources And Feed Additives can attend ESPN2025. The event is locally organized by the Dutch & Belgian WPSA branches.

WPSA (the World's Poultry Science Association) is a long established and unique organization that strives to advance knowledge and understanding of all aspects of poultry science and the poultry industry. Its major role is to encourage, and help facilitate, liaison among research scientists and educators, and between those in research and education and those working in the many diverse sectors of the industry. As a non-profit making organization, it relies for its income almost entirely on membership subscriptions, although a number of poultry companies around the world provide generous sponsorship to help meet some of the production costs of the World's Poultry Science Journal.

With a large and truly international membership of 8,000, the organization's objectives are promoted in various ways. These range from high-profile international congresses and conferences to the many diverse meetings organized by WPSA national branches (of which there are about 80) and two federations of branches - in Europe and in the Asia-Pacific region. Within the Association there are many working groups (of which working group no 2 Nutrition is one) and committees covering various aspects of poultry science and technology. Dedication to the spread of knowledge, education and training is ranked highly amongst the interests of WPSA members.

All WPSA members can attend the regularly held World Congresses and regional conferences, together with many other meetings on various aspects of poultry production and poultry science. In return for their annual subscription, members also receive the World's Poultry Science Journal four times per year.

Every 2 years, working group no 2 (Nutrition) invites a local, national branch to organise a symposium. For 2025, the Dutch & Belgian branches joined forces to organise the 24th European Symposium on Poultry Nutrition.
WPSA members, non WPSA members and students in particular are all welcome to the Symposium.


The Local Organizing Committee is a cooperation between Dutch & Belgian branches of WPSA.
