What 

In 2015, the CWG-SAP laid the foundations for the ERA-NET SusAn.

The animal production sector forms an important part of Europe’s (agricultural) economy and plays an essential role in the provision of Europe`s citizens with high quality animal products. The European animal production landscape is very complex, consisting of different species farmed within a wide range of different extensive, semi-intensive and intensive production systems using multiple resources to produce a diverse range of animal products and other services. The ERA-NET SusAn, however, believes that these challenges and complexities can be effectively addressed through joint European research within a framework which supports the three pillars of sustainability - economy, environment and society - and targets opportunities for innovative research spanning all areas of animal production such as health and welfare, feeding and nutrition, reproduction, breeding and genetics, housing, nutrient management and economics. 

For this, the following objectives have been set: 

  • to pool together funds for a  first transnational call for research projects (in 2016). 
  • to develop a Common Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda on Sustainable Animal Production, which will define research priorities for animal production within the foreseeable future.
  • to organise a variety of other joint activities (e.g., calls, networking events, etc.), all with the goal of promoting research on sustainable animal production, crossing borders of countries and regions within and outside the EU.

Consortium

The SusAn ERA-NET consortium consists of 38 partner organisations from 20 EU Member States and 2 EU Associated Countries.
