Institute of Animal Reproduction and Food Research, Polish Academy of Sciences (IARFR), is a leading R&I centre that brings together interdisciplinary research to design high quality food and fodder to optimize consumers and animals’ well-being.
Competences & Capabilities
IARFR conducts basic and applied research in the areas of food in respect to processing and sensory perception, animal reproduction and aquaculture. Our expertise comprises:
- Designing sustainable food of optimal nutritional value
- Developing personalised nutrition solutions to alleviate risk of diet-related diseases
- Exploitation of omics techniques to validate functionality and authenticity of food
- Utilising agrifood biomaterial, including side streams and waste
Partner in the following EIT Food projects
The aim of the SME workshops is to identify contemporary challenges and solutions in the poultry industry dedicated to feed manufacturers, advisors, farmers and employees in poultry factories, as well as managers responsible for the strategy and profitability of fodder and poultry production, all from RIS-eligible regions.
