What is AESE?

Advancing Equine Scientific Excellence (AESE) is now an established initiative operating as a Committee of the British Equestrian Federation (BEF) which was formed as a collaboration between BEF and the British Society of Animal Science (BSAS) and generously funded by Alltech.

AESE is revolutionising the way in which the horse industry integrates with academic establishments. AESE has held a number of roadshows providing CPD and support to lecturers and post-graduate students and information on these roadshows feature in our archive section. AESE became a Committee of the BEF Equine Development Portfolio in 2014 and provides training for lecturers, tutors and researchers and students on both equine and non-equine related courses will be able to collaborate to carry out research projects which the horse industry needs. Facilitated by the training days, which will have a focus on the study design and statistical analysis utilised within the project, there is scope for some large scale projects to be undertaken which will help to inform the horse industry and provide fruitful research projects for students to undertake.

The setup funding for the roadshows has been generously supplied by Alltech, and administrative support funded by BEF and BSAS.
