LEAP Conference 2021: Call for Papers

Call for papers now open for the Livestock, Environment, and People (LEAP) Conference 2021, hosted by the University of Oxford on the 6th of December, 2021.

The fourth LEAP conference, sponsored by the Wellcome Trust’s, Our Planet, Our Health programme, will take place on the 6th December 2021. This year the team hopes to have a virtual and in-person event, at the Mathematical Institute in Oxford. Building on the success of previous years the team will continue to bring together researchers working on multiple aspects of meat and dairy production and consumption to consider its effects on population health, the economy, society and the environment.

This year the conference will have Judith Batchelar OBE, Director, Sainsbury’s Brand, Sainsbury’s and Prof Mario Herrero, Chief Research Scientist of Agriculture and Food, CSIRO as our plenary speakers.
