Matrix containing industrial needs and research/technology providers in the pig livestock sector.

This is a convenient tool matching industrial needs with existing research. The matrix shows if current research deals with prevailing problems in day-to-day work of a pig farmer and which problems require more research.

The matrix has been developed after identifying farmers needs through workshops and surveys of the pig production sector in Belgium, Italy and Austria, as well as  literature reviews and gathering information on Framework Programme projects (see diagram below).

The current matrix will be updated periodically.

This output from RTD2farm project is publicly available. If you would like to receive the matrix as a spread sheet (.xls), please make a request via the email form below:
