iSAGE (Innovation for Sustainable Sheep and Goat production in Europe) is a 4-year project supported by the European Union H2020 Research Programme. It started in 2016 by an international Consortium composed by 33 research and industry organisations from 7 countries. The ultimate objective of iSAGE is to make the sheep and goat sectors more sustainable, competitive and resilient. These improvements come from strong collaboration between industry and research institutions within the different working areas of the project: sustainability assessment, socioeconomic and consumer’s trends, climate changes assessment and adaptation, redesign of production systems and integration of innovative strategies, managing sheep and goat (genetic resources) and multi-actor communication.
The project is currently in its last period, and it is programming a series of training courses and workshops in several regions of Europe and the Mediterranean to disseminate and transfer to the different stakeholders of the sector the research and development approaches used and the results obtained by the project. This training and workshop aims to cover France, Italy Portugal, and Spain.
