‘LIFT’ is a 4-year EU funded COST Action project which will provide the background for including positive welfare in farm animal welfare assessment. The Action started in November 2022 and will continue to November 2026. Currently, the Action has more than 200 participants from 38 different countries.
The research forum can help people who want to make contact and learn about new indicators and work that has been done in other species.
It will be good to talk at European level about how we can educate the younger generation about animal welfare.
LIFT is about laying the foundations for lifting animals’ lives, through knowledge about positive animal welfare indicators.
As researchers, we have to make an effort to increase the understanding of what positive animal welfare means.
COST can help to align researchers’ conceptualization of positive animal welfare.
