The Commission aims to promote and spread culture and ongoing training on statistical methodology and the design of experiments applied to zootechnical sciences.


The Commission intends to promote knowledge of the correct organization of experimental activities, the collection and processing of research data and the interpretation of the results.


Mathematical - statistical knowledge applied to zootechnical sciences, alongside the use of dedicated software for data processing, are the basis of the training of a good researcher.
