EUPRIM will propose a course on general primate behavior, husbandry and training of laboratory primates for scientists, veterinarians and students, at the German Primate Center in Göttingen, Germany, on November 18-21, 2013.
It will cover general and practise related primatological topics on:
- Behavioural characteristics of macaques & new aspects of husbandry
- Vocal and olfactory communication in Primates
- Nutritional needs and improvements in food supply
- Problem solving in primate husbandry: The use of Training in animal care programmes
- Environmental enrichment & animal-human relationship
- Reproductive strategies and sexual signals in Primates
- Presentation of the macaque husbandry facilities at the German Primate CenterConfirmed speakers: Jessica Rothmann (Hunter College, City University Of New York), Sabrina Brando (Animal Concepts), Julia Ostner, Oliver Schülke (Courant Center, Univ. Göttingen), Julia Fischer, Antje Engelhardt & Eckhard W. Heymann (DPZ,) a.o.
As in former courses we will be a small group comprising a maximum of 35 people. You will find ample opportunities for questions during the sessions and time for discussions during the session breaks as well as during the social events (e.g. guided city tour, convivial evenings).
At the end of the course an optional test with questions on the respective course contents will be provided to certify your successful participation.

This year’s NC3Rs Primate Welfare Meeting will be held back in the UK on 9 October 2015.
This 10-year anniversary meeting will cover a variety of topics on the use and care of nun-human primates, including training animals for cooperation with procedures, new techniques for welfare assessment, minimising data variability, and resources for staff training and information exchange.

What are the evolutionary roots of humankind’s cognitive abilities, language and social systems? What are the unique cognitive and cultural processes that distinguish humans from their nearest primate relatives? What are the mental mechanisms underlying non-human primate emotions and social behaviours? How, why and in what way nonhuman primates’ communication – gestures, vocalizations and facial expressions – differs from human language?
The “Cognition in Primates” Neurex meeting proposes to focus on current research in behaviour, cognition and neurosciences in both apes and monkeys.
