Video ChickenStress European Training Network (ETN)

05/10/2020

The ChickenStress European Training Network (ETN) is a group of projects that will assist egg producers to attain the highest possible welfare for chickens. Egg production is a huge industry not only in Europe but around the world. Consumers care considerably about the welfare of animals and are increasingly motivated to purchase eggs produced in high welfare conditions.

The aim of the project is to provide information on the best welfare conditions that enable optimum egg laying in chickens. This will be accomplished by an international team of 14 PhD students, based in 12 institutions who will engage in multidisciplinary projects, under the supervision of world experts in their fields.
