European Research Area on Sustainable Animal Production Systems

The scope for this ERA-NET was developed under the SCAR Collaborative Working Group on Sustainable Animal Production (CWG-SAP). Funding organisations from 23 European countries initially sought to support one co-funded call, followed by other joint activities, including the development of a common strategic research and innovation agenda on sustainable animal production, a joint European research effort for the further development of sustainable European animal production based on the three pillars of sustainability - economic, environmental and social.
