CIHEAM Montpellier received Julien Faisnel for its first discovery of the institute, its staff and its activities. Julien Faisnel takes over the position previously occupied by Sébastien Abis. He will be responsible more particularly for the organization of the Boards of Directors, to make the link between the General Secretariat and the delegates of the member countries of CIHEAM, and to participate in certain inter-institute working groups.
He will also be the CIHEAM Montpellier privileged (but not exclusive!) contact at the head office. This visit has allowed him to familiarize himself with the content of the Master courses and the scientific themes carried by the teachers-researchers of the institute. The Montpellier institute practices in terms of continuing professional training, doctoral supervision, documentary support and HR management were also presented, as well as the activities of the MED-Amin network.
Julien Faisnel was previously in post at the French Ministry of Agriculture, at the General Direction of Food, where he carried the topics related to the reduction of the use of antibiotics in breeding, as well as to European regulations in veterinary drugs and animal feed.
