The Minding Animals Board selected Universiteit Utrecht to be the host of the second conference, entitled Minding Animals 2: Building Bridges Between Science, the Humanities and Ethics, which took place in July 2012. It was agreed by the Board that the conference was to be convened by Dr Tatjana Višak. Tatjana was ably supported both logistically and financially by her peers in the Ethics Institute (Faculty of Humanities) and Faculty of Veterinary Sciences.
The conference was indeed fortunate in that it was also supported financially by several organisations (other than by the university). Of note, the World Society for the Protection of Animals, the Netherlands Ministry of Agriculture and the European Commission provided funding. Other supporters can be found listed in the Programme Conference Booklet that can be downloaded below.
690 delegates from 42 countries attended the conference.
