Animal Health Curious Innovation series (Auckland)

Animal Health Curious?

Aotearoa New Zealand’s rich agricultural history and economy is built on primary production with animals playing an important role in our lives. We’re seeing huge growth opportunities and new innovation in therapeutics and diagnostics for both productive and companion animals. We’re also experiencing increased development and uptake of digital animal health technologies.

BioTechNZ with the support of Callaghan Innovation invites you to our Animal Health Curious Networking Event on Thursday 19 October.

Why should you attend this event?

  • Do you work in the animal health space?
  • Or are you just curious about research activity in the animal health sector in Auckland?
  • Would you like to connect with like-minded animal curious people?
  • Are you an individual or company from another sector who is interested in understanding more about animal health needs and innovations?
  • Would you like to meet new contacts who may be able to support or inspire you with your animal health aspirations?
  • Do you believe New Zealand can be a global centre of excellence in Animal Health?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, we’d love to see you at our next event! Please bring a friend, colleague or plus one who is interested in animal health to help build our animal health community network.
