2nd Joint Workshop on “Smart Mitigation of GHG in Livestock Production”


A second Joint Workshop between FACCE ERA-GAS, ERA-Net SusAn & ICT-AGRI 2 was organised on 20-21 February 2018 in Dublin Ireland. The theme of the workshop was "Smart Mitigation of GHG Emissions from Livestock Production".

The 2nd Joint Workshop discussed promising strategies and innovations to reduce GHG emissions from key source categories in livestock production, identified priority topics for the 2018 Joint Call planned by FACCE ERA-GAS, ERA-Net SusAn and ICT-AGRI 2 and discussed potential funding instruments and available national resources.

Workshop topic areas focussed on the following priority research topics and promising strategies relating to:

  1. Evaluation of feed chain
  2. Manure management
  3. Reducing nitrogen excretion

Participantsof the Joint Workshop were representatives of partners in FACCE ERA-GAS, ERA-NET SusAn & ICT-AGRI 2 and nominated scientific expertsin the workshop topic areas.

Participants engaged in an interactive discussion on promising approaches to reduce livestock emissions, framed by national experts and scientist in the area, provided input into priority topics which will frame the scope of the 2018 Joint Call and contributed to maximise the impact of all three ERA-NETs by coordinating activities in the areas of common interest.
