The activities of consumer groups and animal protectionists and the effects of large-scale sanitary crises have increased the awareness that animal production is more than just an industry. Farm animal welfare is now clearly an important issue for people across Europe and there is clear demand for higher animal welfare standards. Exotic or emerging infectious threats are ever present and their potential environmental consequences are a growing concern. Endemic and production diseases are often overlooked, although they exert the maximum trouble to animal welfare. The disease threats to the livestock industry have increased steadily as a result of intensification of livestock production, globalisation, evolving pathogens and climate change.
Building on the experience and achievements of the previous ERA-NET EMIDA, the Animal Health and Welfare ERA-NET (ANIHWA) aims to increase cooperation and coordination of national research programmes on animal health and welfare of farm animals, including fish and bees. The cooperation and coordination among the partners will be deepened by systematic exchange of information and mapping of national research activities and facilities, gap analysis and preparation of a dedicated strategic research agenda, thorough assessment of the funding mechanisms with increased number of joint calls and finally strategic activities aimed at a sustainable development and extension of the network.

Mapping

Two Work Packages are aimed at mapping and research gap analysis:

WP2: Mapping of existing research resources and programmes in Animal Health and Welfare. The objective of WP2 is to evaluate and analyse existing research and to increase exchange of information through the establishment of a common open web based archive for mapping of existing research programs, funds and capacities in all the countries participating in the consortium. Building up from EMIDA, It will develop the ...

Building up from EMIDA, It will develop the basic data resources and analysis tools for the ERANET users and for long-term cooperation.
WP3: Gap Analysis and Strategic research agenda development in animal health and welfare. WP3 will conduct a gap analysis study on AH and WF research across EU member states and associated countries. WP3 will Elaborate a framework for transnational research and identify potential synergies between AH and WF partners to improve their research capacities and enhance future joint activities and transnational research cooperation in animal health and welfare.
