Research & Development

Making food production more sustainable is one of the greatest challenges of our times. With global population growth, climate change and increasing societal expectations on food safety, environmental impact and animal welfare, livestock production is under continuous evolution. Kreavet helps its clients to deliver evidence-based solutions to meet these challenges and support the progress towards sustainable livestock farming. We offer specific expertise in the field of veterinary parasitology, epidemiology and socio-economics of animal health. Through our international network of experts, we liaise you to the right person if we don’t have the expertise in house. We participate in international research projects and are experienced in facilitating and managing multi-disciplinary collaborations.

We offer services in the following areas:

Scientific and proposal writing
We help to improve your project proposal or get your publication published. With a track-record of participation and management in several EU-grants and > 70 scientific publications, we can support your project and give it a higher success rate.
Project management
We help you to focus on the science. We can take over (part of) your project management by monitoring milestones and deliverables, collecting and collating project reports and managing your project’s website.
