Area 2 (‘Environment’): Improve and manage resource use to reduce waste and enhance the environmental sustainability of European animal production
We are interest in develop ideias concerning with animal waste management (emissions to water, soil and atmosphere), animal welfare aspects related with environmental control inside the animal facilities (temperature, humidity, CO2, NH3 and other componentes) and energy efficiency. We look for solutions that can integrate those aspects and related them with the animal performances and the suistainabilty of the production systems. To put this in practice we'd like to get information from the animals as behaviour and physiological indicators. We'd like also to develop some bio-sensors to permit the reception of the information from the animals in real time.
