The poultry industry wants to keep on growing, while at the same time keeping an eye on animal welfare and adhering to a changing regulation. This will require a further automatization of the welfare and behavior assessment of poultry while offering opportunities to steer behavior in real-time. To enable this, the WISH project plans to design innovative sensor technology and flock based analysis methods. This should lead to a new gold standard in poultry welfare monitoring.
European Researcher's Night - 28th Sept 2021
ChickenStress ESRs Endre and Emiliano took part in Explorathon 2021 (the Scottish celebration of European Researcher's Night) to talk about their research European Reserachers Night is funded by the European Commission which is the the largest public engagement with research event in Europe. Over 350 cities took part in this series of events late September 2021 making it a great thing to be part of. Pecha Kucha is a talk style which comes from a Japanese expression meaning 'chit chat'. Speakers have 20 images and 20 seconds per image, so a total of six minutes and 40 seconds (very precise format). Please play the video to see what an outstanding job our ESRs did at this Pecha Kucha hosted by Aberdeen University (scroll to 1hr 20 mins).
Latest Advances in Poultry Science
The ChickenStress Network introduces a series of short articles written by our Early-Stage Researchers to communicate the latest advances made by poultry researchers. These articles will cover a series of topics related to poultry science, such as production, welfare and stress. The articles will highlight the most important findings discovered by worldwide researchers, written for a community that do not belong to a specific academic field. The idea of writing these series of articles combines the possibility to develop their communicational skills as well as interact and engage with the public.
