Project Activities

Although international organisations and partnerships for pig sciences research exist, this field is charcterised by a low level of interaction and co-operation. To address this problem. RTD2Farm will support interaction and co-operation by .joint activities (see WP3 and WP4), such as integration through a web-based information platform and, training.

Since pig sciences research development varies among the countries represented by the RTD2Farm consortium, the opportunity exists to enhance co-operation and exchange in this research area as a whole. 

The research on pig farming at national level will be integrated and multidisciplinary in scope. Instead of concentrating on how to increase productivity, the focus of the research and development efforts will be aimed at assuring sustainability of pig production.
