Adapting the feed, the animal and the feeding techniques to improve the efficiency and sustainability of monogastric livestock production systems
Adapting the feed, the animal and the feeding techniques to improve the efficiency and sustainability of monogastric livestock production systems

Suggestions for Horizon Europe (FP9)

Ensuring a sustainable food supply in Europe is a complex issue and calls for a multidisciplinary and multi-actor approach. To facilitate integration within the project and to ensure societal uptake and impact, the Feed-a-Gene Executive Committee feels that the objective (and object) of future projects should be focused and question-oriented, which should be addressed at different levels. The innovation potential of projects could be improved by allowing future projects to be somewhat “open-ended” (in terms of ideas and resource allocation) based on new insights and results obtained during the first years of the project. This short note expresses the views and opinions of the Executive Committee of the Feed-a-Gene project on what we feel as important topics to be addressed in the next framework program (FP9) Horizon Europe. Those topics include:

  • Diversification of feed resources: from one to many
  • Data analysis and modeling: where black meets white
  • Integration of technologies to improve the sustainability of livestock production systems
  • Robustness and efficiency when there is no “one-size-fits-all”
