The aims of PIGWEB are to strengthen the pig research community by providing and facilitating access to research infrastructures (RI), reinforce the culture of cooperation between the research community and industrial and societal stakeholders, and improve and integrate the services provided by the RI. This will contribute to develop innovative and ethical solutions for sustainable pig production systems (e.g., identify novel feed resources that are not or less in competition with other uses, improve animal health and welfare, produce high quality pork products, and reduce environmental and climate impact).

De taken van WENR in het project richten zich met name op de volgende doelstellingen:

i) Ensure easy and transparent access to 28 experimental pig RI and associated laboratories in 9 different countries.

ii) Create a community of pig research infrastructures by mapping installations beyond the partners of the project and identifying future research needs in the pig production sector.

iii) Harmonise protocols, best practices, and promote the use of standards to ensure high levels of expertise and ethics.

iv) Ensure dissemination, exploitation, and technology transfer of results generated by the project.
