Area 1 (‘Economy’): Improve the productivity, resilience and competitiveness of European Animal Production
We would like our research capacity and expertise in animal nutrition and performance, and our capacity of running trials with our animal biosecurity level 2 facilities.
IMASDE AGROALIMENTARIA S.L. (IMASDE) is a private research center funded in 2000 and located in Spain. IMASDE is also an SME, composed by 25 people (agricultural engineers, veterinarians), 30% Ph.D. IMASDE has two lines of activity: i) Consultancy for the management of R&D projects of agricultural companies, and ii) Research activity, inside these projects or under a contract. IMASDE has its own research facilities, consisting in i) experimental farms (broilers –one of the biggest in Europe-, laying hens -welfare adapted-), ii) Animal biosafety level 2 facilities, in which we can run challenge trials (Campylobacter, Clostridium perfringens, coccidiosis, Salmonella) and iii) microbiological lab, in which we can apply classic microbiological or qPCR analysis. Also, we can perform pig trials in associate farms. IMASDE is actually coordinating the project CAMPYBRO (www.campybro.eu), with 10 partners, funded within the 7th Frame program of the EU, showing our capacity for management in large international projects. Also, IMASDE is involved in the European project LIFE SMART FERTIRRIGATION (www.smartfertirrigation.eu), regarding improved environmental technologies in pig production. We have been involved in more than 400 projects at Spanish and European level, all of them in agricultural sector (animal nutrition, animal production, welfare, environment, feed and food quality and safety), and we are a reference in Europe on additives evaluation for animal nutrition.
