Animal Welfare

The Animal Welfare Subgroup of the CWG was established in 2009 and is currently working towards identifying common research priorities, funding opportunities and options to address these priorities.  The group will benefit greatly from advent of the Animal Health and Welfare ERA-NET, ANIHWA, in January 2012 which will map the welfare research landscape, as was done for animal health through EMIDA, and provide a platform on which to run common and coordinated trans-national research calls. A Strategic Research Agenda for animal welfare will also be developed through ANIHWA providing research funders with the means to look to the future in delivering their policy needs and improving animal welfare across Eurpoe.
