Commission to support financially animal welfare project
The European Commission intends to award a new two-million euro grant to a project promoting high quality control posts for resting animals over long journeys.
The project aims to continue a previous EU action on the renovation, or the building of, control posts for animal welfare purposes. It will include the development of a certification scheme for transporters using these control posts. Campaigns to inform all stakeholders are envisaged in order to disseminate the results of the action to the potential users of the control posts.
Deadline for application: 31.08.2011
