Lifting Farm Animal Lives - laying the foundations for positive animal welfare

About the Action

‘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.
