Dear BERGers

I am delighted to say that I have just been informed that my application to the Universities Federation for Animal Welfare (UFAW) to support our BERG meetings has been successful.

If you are not already a member please consider joining UFAW (http://www.ufaw.org.uk/ ). It is only £5 for students (£10 others) without access to their journal, Animal Welfare.  By joining UFAW you can help make real, practical and lasting advances to animal welfare throughout the world - for companion animals, farm animals, animals used in research, captive wild animals and those living in the wild that are affected by human activities. Please do join to thank them for their continued support of us in BERG and to enhance animal welfare.

It's that time of year again, and we are looking for people to volunteer for BERG meeting slots for this semester.

The first meeting is on Wednesday 21st September at 5.30pm in 3A94 (Psychology common room). We shall use this meeting for introductions and updates from the summer. If you have any photographs (Peter?) or adventurous/exciting tales you'd like to share with us, please let me know and I'll coordinate.

I have set up a Doodle sign-up, so just fill it out to indicate the week that you would like to present.

Presenting at BERG is an excellent way to practice talks, hone your presentation skills, get feedback on grant application ideas, lead a discussion of a research paper  etc.

The sign up is here: http://doodle.com/grwa293pnf2aiaep

When you sign up for a slot, please send me a brief title BEFORE 16th September so I can circulate the programme in advance.

If you have new students who wish to be on the BERG mailing list, please send them this e-mail (and my earlier message on the Edinburgh talks on Living Links to Human Health, Mind and Medicine). To sign up to the BERG mailing list new folk must complete the form available here:


Many thanks, Hannah
