Community-funded research

The Protocol on the Protection and Welfare of Animals, annexed to the EC Treaty by the Treaty of Amsterdam, recognises that animals are sentient beings and obliges the European Institutions to pay full regard to the welfare requirements of animals when formulating and implementing Community policies, including in the research area. Links are given below to some recently completed or ongoing Community-funded research projects having an important animal welfare component. Further details on agriculture related projects are available on the AGRINET website.
