RTD2Farm at a glance

In order to arise awareness for new research results and their possible impact on livestock industry RTD2Farm has a simple strategy to increase the uptake of RTD Results by livestock farmers: RTD2Farm will collect public financed research results, analyse methods for knowledge and technology transfer, define Best Practice, and spread research results in a user friendly language to farmers and multipliers via a knowledge platformRTD2Farm responds to needs clearly felt in the European pig farming community, to raise quality and productivity level of pig production, while decreasing the overall costs, including the environmental impact and keeping in mind European current standards on pig welfare.

RTD2Farm is involving the three main players of the process; RTD providers (Research centres, Universities, Industry, etc.), Technology Transfer experts (Networking and Training Organisations) and Farmers (End Users).
