Theme of the Conference

Considerable research effort is being directed towards improving the availability of inositol phosphates in animal feeds, yet the biological, chemical and physical interaction of inositol phosphates in soil remains poorly understood. Given the widespread adoption of dietary modifications in animal production, there is an urgent need to improve our understanding of the behavior and mobility of inositol phosphates in the environment and their biological availability in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. The meeting aims to address this in a multidisciplinary context, and will focus on three key topics:

  1. Analysis of inositol phosphates in environmental samples
  2. Current research on inositol phosphates in animal nutrition
  3. The fate of inositol phosphates in the environment

Rationale & Aims


Keynote Speakers

A panel of 15 leading experts on inositol phosphates will present keynote reviews, alongside shorter offered presentations describing current research.
