Our research projects


DairyHealthSim is a new bio-economic sequential optimization model, and one of the main projects of the team.


C2Benef is part of the Ecoantibio 3 plan of the french Ministry of Agriculture and Food Sovereignty against antimicrobian resistances in veterinary medicine. The aim of C2Benef is assess the costs and benefits of practices to reduce antibiotic use for swines and cattle.


The European Partnership Animal Health & Welfare goal is to progress Europe towards healthy and sustainable livestock production systems including the reduction of anti-microbial usage, and to greatly improve production animal welfare.


The TerrAELait project is funded by the Occitanie region of France. It is a 3-year cooperative project which aims to identify the obstacles and levers to an agro-ecological re-regionalisation of the Occitanie dairy industry.


AMAGRI brings together economic and social science researchers who, through a range of projects, are studying the way antibiotics are used in agriculture.


Roadmap is a 4-year EU-funded project that will foster transitions towards prudent antimicrobial use (AMU) in animal production in a large variety of contexts, by favouring a rethinking of antimicrobial decision-systems all along the food supply chain.
