Stakeholders Association

The BSAS Industry and Academic Associations have merged to form the Stakeholders Association.    
The Stakeholders Association is committed to:

  • Promoting increased industry and academic engagement in BSAS and assist in the wider promotion of BSAS and its activities
  • Promoting increased collaboration within academic and between academic and industry organisations
  • Facilitating networking and communication between academia and industry (& vice versa)
  • Fostering (early) career development for graduates and post-graduates – careers information, training, employment and networking opportunities are key values for students as identified by the Early Careers Council 
  • Driving education and knowledge transfer, including targeting land-based colleges who would gain significant benefit from these aspects of the Society. Specific training and CPD may be developed to facilitate this.    
  • Continuing to support, promote and develop the annual IA prize at the Annual Conference as a vehicle to encourage students (and supervisors) to consider, explore and elaborate on the scientific and commercial implications of their work for industry
  • Increasing awareness of the value of professional accreditation and potentially act as a facilitator or service provider
  • Providing opportunities for industry to inform dedicated, industry relevant sessions at BSAS Annual Conference and promote industry attendance at such sessions
  • Allowing members to being part of and support an organisation that champions UK animal science

In summary 

  • Provide a ‘One Stop Shop’ where industry and academia can access each other’s expertise
  • Facilitate focussed/tailored CPD and training for members
  • Provide a technical resource for exchange of expertise in both directions
  • Foster collaboration on events and knowledge transfer
