The inaugural not-for-profit event is being organised by Roslin Innovation Centre, University of Edinburgh, in partnership with Life Sciences Scotland AAA Industry Leadership Group, representing numerous organisations across Scotland, including Scotland's Rural College (SRUC), James Hutton Institute, Sustainable Aquaculture Innovation Centre, Scottish Association for Marine Science and Agri-EPICentre amongst other AAA stakeholders.

The idea for the event came from Lawrence Brown, Vet, Consultant and Innovation Manager for Health at Edinburgh Innovations and John Mackenzie, CEO of the Roslin Innovation Centre, who were inspired by Canada’s Vet Health Global Conference.

The inaugural event was due to take place in September 2020 but, due to the pandemic, it has been postponed until 26 - 27th April 2022.

“The organising committee for A3 Scotland 2022 is thrilled to have Zoetis as our Platinum Sponsor. As a global leader in Animal Health, Aquaculture and Agri-tech (AAA), Zoetis is the perfect partner and we look forward to working closely in ensuring A3 Scotland 2022 is a success. Zoetis’ shared enthusiasm for driving innovation, investment and collaboration across AAA has been hugely encouraging and their commitment to A3 Scotland 2022 demonstrates the important role that Scotland will play in the future of sustainable food security and animal health.”
