Global and European animal production are an undergoing major transformation that reveals health and welfare problems related to intensive livestock production. Implementing new technology in combination with understanding biology can contribute to solve health and welfare problems in livestock production. However people educated in biology are not aware of the possibilities of modern technology. The main objective of the 4 years EU BioBusiness project is to train early stage researchers in technology for livestock. 11 well trained people are expected to understand the innovative potential of Precision Livestock Farming (PLF) looking from the animal side. Furthermore they are expected to present innovative product concepts and business models on the field of intensive animal production benefitting the industry and consumers.
