Scientific Advisory Board

The HealthyLivestock project will be supported by a Scientific Advisory Board (SAB), consisting of five independent advisers. The SAB provides an external scientific point of view on how to execute the project and provide the best outcomes to the Chinese and European societies. It will advise the General Assembly of the project on where and how the most promising results should be exploited or presented. The advisers have different theoretical and practical back grounds, and are based in different parts of the world
