V International Meeting of Young Agricultural Workers. From June 6 to 9

By the initiative of the a group of young researchers of the Institute of Animal Science it emerged the idea of making an Event for Young Scientists within the context of the World's Day of the Environment when free of any formality and enriched by the frankness and passion of youth a forum of discussion is created transcending our boundaries and permitting to integrate the work of young researchers from different national institutions and from other countries and who are working for the agricultural sector and are engaged with their peoples and with the legacy of the future generations.

The first meeting were held in June of 2004, 2006, 2008 and 2010, and a great number of young people of universities and research centres from Argentine, Guatemala, Mexico, Bolivia, Brasil, Venezuela, Equator, Colombia, Panama, Dominican Republic, United States, Spain, Netherlands, Angola and Cuba assisted. They were full of the enthusiasm that characterizes the new generations and also the responsibility and scientific rigour necessary to obtain a fruitful interchange of knowledge among the participants.

Now, we are glad to invite you to the 5th International Meeting of Agricultural Youth Interjoven 2012 that will take place in our facilities in June of this year.
