The EuroFAANG cluster addresses challenges in farmed animal production, namely the better use of resources, animal health and welfare, the environment and the climate impact of breeding but also feeding the world with fewer resources.
This is only possible with collaboration with the six partner projects, which tackle a wide range of livestock species, such as farmed fish, ruminants, pigs, and chickens. Set up and led with the joint effort of the six EuroFAANG cluster projects in 2022, a new Horizon Europe project proposal was submitted under the call “Research Infrastructure Concept Development”.
Successfully approved by the EU, the new EuroFAANG Research Infrastructure (RI) project now thrives on developing a concept for a formalised infrastructure for farmed animal G2P research in Europe (EuroFAANG).
