EGS-ABG offers a European programme shaped to train the current and future generations of animal breeders to meet the challenges presented by the increasing demand of food while reducing the impacts on environment and biodiversity. If mastered, the emergence of genomics should provide means to solve this equation. The aim of EGS-ABG is to generate the future key international leaders of the animal breeding and genetics sector, whether for employment in academia or in industry.
The strategic aim of this project is to unlock the potential for proactive herd management by providing the farmer with improved tools for on-farm reproductive monitoring and management. This will be achieved by a pluridisciplinary approach to eliminate the key scientific and methodological blockages and develop innovative solutions for a robust and sustainable improvement of fertility in cows.
The European research project FISHBOOST will advance European aquaculture to the next level by developing balanced and sustainable breeding programmes to improve breeding programmes for the six main fin fish species. For more information, FISHBOOST.
SAPHIR aims to develop vaccine strategies effective against endemic pathogens responsible for high economic losses in livestock in order to strengthen the profitability of food animal systems, improve animal welfare and reduce xenobiotic usage in farming with a One Health perspective.
