Short Call Abstract:

Members of the SCAR Collaborative Working Group on Sustainable Animal Production (CWG-SAP) agreed that future development of the European Animal Production sector will need to build on the sustainability triangle of economic competitiveness, social acceptability and environmental protection. Partners in this ERA-NET believe that concerted effort and progress towards the development of a more Sustainable European Animal Production sector, requires interdisciplinary systems research with multiple objectives to address all three challenges, instead of tackling them individually, to maximise benefits and minimise trade-offs.

Call Topics
This co-funded call for research is open to transnational research proposals which take a systems and interdisciplinary approach to research to address multiple objectives under the following three Research Areas:

  • Research Area 1: Improve the productivity, resilience and competitiveness of European Animal Production
  • Research Area 2: Improve and manage resource use to reduce waste and enhance the environmental sustainability of European Animal Production
  • Research Area 3: Improve on-farm practices to enhance consumer acceptability and address societal challenges associated with animal welfare, product quality and safety, biodiversity and provision of ecosystem services.

SSH aspects: 

Cultural aspects, behavioural aspects, communication aspects, consumption patterns, acceptance issues, economic aspects, educational aspects, resilience, employment, management-, organisational- and governance issues, ethical aspects, lifestyles, values, sustainability
