Within various scientific projects financed by the European Union a large amount of knowledge is generated, which is only known to the scientific community. Especially in the field of agricultural sciences there is a lack of knowledge transfer from scientific groups to livestock farmers. Therefore the European FP7 financed project RTD2Farm developed the innovation window Wikipigs, an online interactive platform which provides free information on European or national public financed projects. For farmers and multipliers the RTD2Farm project developed the information and lifelong learning platform PigSci. PigSci provides gathered, aggregated and transformed information in national languages.

 

Within the EU Center for Excellence in Pig Sciences centre the RTD2Farm project wants to encourage interaction and co-operation along the whole pig value chain, between scientists, pig producers, associations, funding organizations, politicians towards multipliers and stakeholders.
