EU Partnership Animal Health and Welfare

The European Partnership Animal Health & Welfare (EUP AH&W) intends to be a Research and Innovation Partnership set up in the context of Horizon Europe. Its general goals are to progress Europe towards healthy and sustainable livestock production systems (for both terrestrial and aquatic animals), including the reduction of anti-microbial usage, and to greatly improve production animal welfare, in line with the European Green Deal and farm-to-fork strategy. Furthermore, the EUP AH&W will enhance public health and well-being by facilitating cross-sector collaboration in a One Health – One Welfare perspective.


This strategic research and innovation agenda (SRIA) presents the long-term vision of the EUP AH&W and addresses the strategic objectives that will guide the activities of the partnership. The SRIA has been composed in close collaboration with representatives of the SCAR Collaborative Working Group AHW, the ERA-NET ICRAD and DG-AGRI, and in consultation with experts and academics with relevant backgrounds in animal health and animal welfare. 


This SRIA was open for public consultation until 17 February 2023. Download the EUP SRIA and Addendum here.

On 15 February 2023 we organised an online webinar where we provided further information on the European Partnership on Animal Health and Welfare and answered your questions.
