Adisseo aims to foster international collaboration among leading laboratories and drive innovation within the industry.

The selection process for this prestigious grant will be overseen by a distinguished scientific committee comprising academic professors and industry representatives. The committee members are:

  • Prof. Richard Ducatelle, Veterinary Pathology, Ghent University (Belgium)
  • Prof. Yuming Guo, Animal Science and Technology, China Agricultural University, Beijing (China)
  • Prof. Mike Kidd, Center of Excellence for Poultry Science, University of Arkansas (USA)

The committee will rigorously evaluate proposals to ensure the selected projects align with the grant's objectives and have the potential to address complex industry challenges.

This edition of the grant will support projects investigating nutritional approaches for monogastric animals (swine and poultry). Proposals must demonstrate significant sustainable solutions to overcome challenges in the swine or poultry industry, specifically focusing on:

  • Addressing global challenges of climate change
