Another AURIL conference has come to an end, this year with a powerful message about participation. That’s why we were all in Bristol of course – to take part in conversations large and small about our profession: the highs, the lows, the skills, the tips, what works, what doesn’t, where to find the money, how to spend it…the list goes on. A word cloud from the talks I heard would have Place, Design, Partners and Funding writ large: they are all vital components of Knowledge Exchange and all concepts that can be unpacked and unpicked to provide your own recipe for success.

The Animal Welfare Assessment Grid (AWAG) system is a web-based software application designed for capturing, storing and visualising animal welfare assessment data. The system was developed by Public Health England in collaboration with the University of Surrey, School of Veterinary Medicine. The first version was released in 2015 and has been trialled by PHE and a number of other research organisations. Feedback has been very positive in terms of assessing current welfare and identifying areas for potential improvement such as housing, use of enrichment and frequency of applying procedures. During these trials and those from zoos and wildlife trusts, many ideas for future developments have been gathered. Further development is now required to refine the system and to make it applicable to a wider range of applications in the research community where the system has potential to improve animal welfare.
