The French branch has always contributed with great interest to the activities of the Working Group 3
“Breeding and Genetics" of the European Federation of the WPSA. It will host for the first time the
European Symposium on Poultry Genetics in 2017.
It will be our pleasure to welcome you in the beautiful historical city of Saint-Malo, on the coast of
Brittany, which is also a region hosting major poultry breeding companies. The symposium will be
hosted by the Convention center of the city of Saint-Malo, nicely located close to the city center and
with a direct view on the sea.
In 2017, France will also host the WPSA symposium on Poultry welfare organized by WG9 and we
decided to organize the Genetics symposium in the week following the Welfare symposium, in the
same area of France, in order to facilitate cross-participation and cross-sponsoring to these two events.
Thus, the selected dates for the 10th ESPG are June 26-28 2017 whereas the Welfare Symposium will
take place from June 19 to 23, in Ploufragan.
These symposiums are important milestones towards the hosting of the World Poultry Congress in
Paris, 2020
We are preparing a cutting edge programme featuring genomics and breeding, and will propose a
session devoted to genetics of welfare, to make the link with the Welfare symposium.
