TAFS has broadened its scope: besides TSEs and Paratuberculosis, Influenza has been taken up as our third topic. An informational paper on this topic is published on TAFS' website.
Knowledge dissemination about transmissible animal diseases and food safety is a key mandate of TAFS. So far, we have done this through public conferences and position papers on our website. Now, TAFS has taken a novel approach and makes the knowledge captured in previous documents available through 'Grasp-It®', a tool that sorts statements into three categories (facts, opinions, assumptions) and makes the semantic relationships betweem them transparent (e.g., opinion x is based on fact y and assumption z).
Go to www.grasp-it.ch to learn more about the approach or start the tool here.
s per January 1st, 2010, TAFS welcomes Professor Dr. Klaus G. Grunert of the Aarhus School of Business, Denmark, as its latest member.
