Adisseo Research Grant 2024

A Gateway to the Future in Animal Nutrition

Adisseo is pursuing a policy of continuous research and innovation in its expertise fields to meet feed industry needs. In line with this vision, and following the success of the previous edition, Adisseo proudly announces the commencement of the 3rd Research Grant edition. As the past edition, we will offer €1 M for the next three years to fund research projects tackling some of the main feed industry challenges and encouraging international labs to collaborate.

The proposed research projects should concern innovative nutritional approaches for monogastric (poultry and swine). All the projects’ proposals must justify how they are bringing significative sustainable solutions. The research projects where nutritional approaches are considered should be positioned on one of the following axes:

Managing/Addressing the global challenges of climate change

  • Securing performance in hot conditions

  • Maximizing efficiency with the utilization of new raw materials

  • Optimizing water usage in challenging conditions


Applying the One Health concept in animal production

  • Exploring alternatives to medication: nutrition for resilience

  • Implementing early feeding for improved performance and health

  • Advancing in precise nutrition and/or health management for enhanced weaning transition

  • Improving animal longevity, specifically for laying hens and sows

It is important to note that projects falling under these axes are preferred.

However, if a project does not directly align with these axes but addresses topics to improve sustainability of swine or poultry through nutrition, it could be submitted under the following category. Additional justification would be encouraged.
