Oysters, mussels, clams... marine molluscs are valued as tasty sources of nutrients. They are also valuable sources of income for many regions. EU-funded research is developing new knowledge and innovative techniques to help tackle diseases that can affect the health of bivalves and the livelihoods of producers as well as consumer health.

Photo of article Network advances research on infectious animal diseases

Infectious animal diseases represent a serious threat to farm animals as well as to humans' public health. An EU-funded project is building a transnational network of bio-containment research facilities, industry partners and international organisations that allows for safe research on high-risk pathogens causing highly contagious animal diseases.

Photo of article Engineering vaccines to protect farm animals from infection

An EU-funded project is using synthetic biology techniques to design broad-spectra vaccines against mycoplasmas and viral infections in farm animals. By designing a growth medium without animal components and developing a platform to engineer new vaccines, the project will give the EU livestock industry a much-needed boost.

Photo of article Promoting animal health for sustainable farming

Intensive farming methods have led to an increase in production-associated disease in farm animals which is threatening animal welfare, product quality and industry profitability. EU-funded research is leading the way in developing innovative solutions to improve animal health in pig and poultry farming.
