[Project] : Pig welfare and Immune Programming: determination and exploration of metabolic and epigenetic mechanisms
photo institution crosbanim
[Project] : This project will produce knowledge on the institutional conditions for the coexistence or hybridisation of animal health and welfare. It will also provide a basis for future-oriented thinking on interdisciplinary research in the animal sciences and the humanities and social sciences, and more broadly on the future of livestock farming in our societies up to 2050

[Projet] : Today, animal welfare is not simply restricted to ensuring adequate housing and food, good health, an absence of negative emotions and the presence of positive emotional states.
photo bovin
[Projet] : a number of studies are underway to design farming methods that encourage the young-adult bond. Among these, the rearing of calves by nurse cows is a ground-breaking innovation, developed and disseminated within socio-technical networks of grassland farmers.
photo moutons
[Project] : The project proposes four case studies designed to explore and describe the ways in which animals leave work, leading to a more general understanding of the underlying socio-technical mechanisms.
photo de truite
[Project] : to assess the effects of an innovative enrichment system involving the introduction of a pipe generating a curtain of bubbles into the tank from the earliest stages of life, since preliminary observations have shown that fish are attracted to areas where bubbles are diffused.
Photo porcelet
[Projet] : In animal husbandry, the term "weaning" is associated with the end of milk intake, and generally takes place at 21 or 28 days of age in conventional pig farming.

[Project] : The PrenatOdor project aims to generate knowledge on the effectiveness of a strategy based on prenatal olfactory enrichment to improve animal health and welfare in livestock farming, using a multi-disciplinary approach combining ethology, immunology and epigenetics.

[Projet] : Trade-off between immunocompetence, behaviour and production in laying hens raised with an outdoor access.
[Project] : Alternatives to artificial feeding in goat farms: effects on behaviour, the microbiota, health and milk quality
