The research aim is to study animal welfare and how it is managed on farm, during transport and slaughter. This includes studying the interactions between humans and animals and between stockmen and authorities.

This research focus on farm animal welfare and the linkage between animals and humans, in the whole production chain. We will develop tools for assessing welfare of animals and for the management of farm animals taking into account the importance of communication.
Further, we will focus on the interaction between human and animals from an ethological as well as an anthropological view. We will investigate the concept of OneWelfare concept (incorporating animal welfare, human well-being and environment) and seek to provide data that can contribute to the achievements of the UN Sustainability Goals.
