Insects as sustainable feed: an interdisciplinary approach

  • 12 September 2024
  • 09:00-17:00
  • Wageningen, Omnia
  • InsectFeed

Sustainable food production is a major challenge. Can insects feature in sustainable feed production to support the growing world population without transgressing the planetary boundaries? That is the central question during this interdisciplinary symposium on the 12th of September 2024!

A diversity of speakers will highlight their research on, among others, the effect of feeding livestock with insects on livestock health and welfare, the economic robustness of the insect value chain and consequences of producing insects on low-quality waste streams. Furthermore, several speakers will highlight insect ethics and welfare questions and share their research on insect behaviour and their immune system. All these topics will be addressed by researchers and placed in broader perspective by different stakeholders.
