The overall objective is to enhance international discipline cooperation so as to exchange ideas, share good practices and assess technologies that could result in reducing the emissions of ammonia and GHGs from livestock buildings and thus to lead to a more environmental friendly and sustainable livestock production. For this purpose, techniques that could be applied to monitor GHGs and ammonia concentration will be assessed


“COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is a pan-European intergovernmental framework. Its mission is to enable break-through scientific and technological developments leading to new concepts and products and thereby contribute to strengthening Europe’s research and innovation capacities. It allows researchers, engineers and scholars to jointly develop their own ideas and take new initiatives across all fields of science and technology, while promoting multi- and interdisciplinary approaches. COST aims at fostering a better integration of less research intensive countries to the knowledge hubs of the European Research Area. The COST Association, an International not-for- profit Association under Belgian Law, integrates all management, governing and administrative functions necessary for the operation of the framework. The COST Association has currently 36 Member Countries.”
