Abstract

In Italy, the courses in animal science include large educational spaces dedicated to practical aspects and internships— both in university experimental farms and in private companies. • The investment in research and innovation in Italy is lower than in Europe, with an increase driven by a larger number of progressive private/business investments. • The Italian job market for animal science graduates has excellent opportunities for rewarding careers. • Italian animal scientists are active in the area of agricultural and veterinary science; however, in the near future, the potential for jobs and research in animal science must consider the outcomes of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic crisis
