Animal Health and Welfare (14-06-2010)

Commission supports research in the field of animal welfare

The European Commission plans to award a grant of 3,8 million EUR to a project promoting high quality control posts for resting animals transported over long journeys.

The project should target the refinement of the quality criteria for control posts on the basis of an existing feasibility study and the strategies that should be developed to improve the use of these posts by transporters. The project should include concrete realisation of a high standard control post. Deadline for application: 30/09/2010.
