Proposal

  1. Scientific and/or technical quality, relevant to the topics addressed by the call

    1. Concept and objectives

Concept

The Central American bio-based economy has an approximate market size of over EUR xxxx, employing more than xxxxx, and is therefore an essential component of this growth strategy. The increasing word-wide in special European demand for animal (cattle and pigs) products of good quality and increasing societal concerns over animal welfare and health while heavily reducing environmental load and energy use in putting livestock farming under pressure.

The proposal is focused in Central America countries to research on productivity and management of natural resources with socio-economic considerations. Livestock reproduction and nutrition efficiency are targeted in order to ensure efficient and sustainable production. Following the previous research that has shown modern technology developed by innovative SMEs that have a high potential to quantitative information directly from the animal its environment and enable precise husbandry management, this technology is referred to as Precision Livestock Farming (PLF), so in our proposal consider “ultrasound” technology to measure the quality meat for cattle and pigs. With the collaborative research of European and Central American partners this project expects surplus of cooperation between animal scientist, veterinarians, bio- and other engineers and agricultural economist, surplus of implementable system which relate sensors, parameter analysis to key indicators on central American farms, surplus of understanding how PLF based on ultrasound create aggregated value as bio diesel (animal fats) for different European and central American stakeholders and users, and suitable business models to further adoption of PLF ultrasound and bio diesel based. This research will use data envelopment analysis (DEA) for the purpose of calculating efficiencies in livestock production. The methods implemented in the researching considers the application of Malmquist DEA methods to panel data to calculate indices of total factor productivity (TFP) change; technological (Ultrasound and bio diesel), technical efficiency change and scale efficiency change.

The expected impact is contribute to the understanding of the usefulness of the new technologies (Ultrasound and Bio-diesel) in bio economic and social terms and will provide Central American farmers with clear financial and social incentives to move towards their adoption. The creation of new business models will give rise to a PLF (Ultrasound and Bio-diesel) service industry which will assist terrestrial livestock farmers to meet the challenge of producing in a more efficient and productivity way and addressing the societal concerns about livestock production with biodiesel as a derivate sub product. The exchange of data along the feed-animal-food-biodiesel chain will unlock unused bio economic potential. The blueprint will help global industry players to transform livestock industry into an innovative sector by collaborating with European high-tech SMEs that in turn will be helped to gain access to the European market.

The cooperation strategy between European Central American partners is based in an extensive field test implement, materialize and evaluate an animal farm-centric approach to innovative terrestrial livestock farming in Central America countries as Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua y Panamá, to improve production efficiency and address concerns about sustainability of terrestrial livestock production and animal health and welfare. In this project, industry will be working together with innovative SMEs and Central American and European researchers from animal and veterinary science and from agricultural economist and engineering with PLF (Ultrasound and bio diesel) focus and farmers. The project defines, implement and validate trough research the following objectives for one terrestrial animal production system in each Central American country studied:

General Objective:

Develop the livestock production terrestrial system productivity with Central American farm-centric approach using the Ultrasound and Biodiesel as PLF technology for improving the quality cattle meat.

Specific objectives



  1. Identify and estimating the potential bioeconomy benefits for Central American countries with baseline in agreement with European and Central American experts from animal, welfare, animal health, biodiesel and productivity and their “golden standards”.

  2. Define a set of practical technologies (Biotecnology) as “ultrasound and biodiesel” to measure such baseline which considers cattle meet in life and skeleton, bioeconomy productivity and biodiesel as biofuels.

  3. Structure an informatics system for bringing integrated solution using relevant key indicator (baseline), accessible to all farmer for better management and adaptive control of effector for animal husbandry.

  4. Promote the analysis of impact of specific bioeconomy biodiesel component to social and economic aggregated value creation potential of exchanging collected data along the supply change feed-animal-food and your derivate biodiesel.

  5. Develop a business models for “PLF as service” in cooperation with Central American farmers associations and other multipliers (Governmental institutions).

  6. Mobilize policy and institutional change aimed at promoting and facilitating public and private decision-making regarding bioeconomy developments driving force for innovation in the Central American livestock sector.

  7. Increase the importance of Intellectual property (IP) with the “PLF” as property technology that demand a revision of the IPR system, as well as increasingly more complex management requirement for R&D processes. An indicator of important is the ultrasound and biodiesel.

    1. S/T methodology and associated work plan

  1. Describe the overall strategy of the work plan (maximum length: 1 page)

On the WP1 (Input) its strategy is aimed constructing the information base for the successful implementation of the subsequent project activities. In this sense it focuses on the identification of existing experiences and their key drivers and the mapping of actors and capacities in the key fields, then move to a more in-depth analysis of existing Central America (CA) conditions in the three key areas for PLF(Ultrasound and biodiesel) development, natural resources, innovation capacities and the policy and regulatory environments, and finally assess the potential benefits to the region should appropriate action be taken to exploit existing PLF (Ultrasound and biodiesel) opportunities. To facilitate the use of the information generated in this WP all results will be integrated into formal documents and/or online data bases, which will serve as a “work-in progress” PLF observatory. The results will provide important inputs for WP2, as well as WP3 and WP4, WP5, WP6, WP7 and WP8 feeding the discussions of scenarios, and the policy dialogue platforms on future priorities and implementation agendas.

WP 2 (Options): Building on the information and analysis base developed in WP1, this WP is aimed at organizing a series of multi-stakeholders workshops where the different perspectives can be brought together in terms of synthesizing both broad strategies as well as action agendas for specific topics. Previous experience of the key leading partners in organizing EU-LAC workshops in the former FP6 SSA ALCUE-Food project assures that this important task will be completed correctly and on time. Furthermore, to keep costs at a reasonable level, while assuring broad stakeholders’ participation full use will be made of e-consultations and electronic discussion groups so to facilitate that all different perspectives are effectively incorporated into the project’s final products.

WP3 Strategies: Constitute the cornerstone of project implementation as it aims to establish the platform that will internalize the PLF (Ultrasound and biodiesel) concepts and transform them into specific lines of actions in terms of policies, converging bi-regional R&D priorities and cooperation strategies, increased opportunities for interactions between science and industry and specific joint projects. This will be done through a series of interactions involving both project partners and stakeholders – as platform members – which will not only include face-to-face meetings, organized jointly with regional organizations such as Central America Council of Universities (CSUCA), but also a preparatory phase organized on the basis of e-consultations and electronic discussion groups.

It is expected that by fully incorporating TICs based interaction methodologies the project will greatly increase the possibility of full up-take of the platform by regional organizations and others.

WP 4 Info mgmt.: To set up the electronic communications instrument to support e-consultations and electronic discussion groups in the different WPs as well as to later serve as a permanent communications and interaction facility for the scientific, policy and industrial community interested in PLF issues both in CA and the EU. At the same time all intermediate products – working papers, Policy briefs/notes and agendas – will be developed with common editorial norms and formats aiming at their integration in a single volume of issues related to the PLF-CA in cooperation with Europe.

WP 5 Coordination: WP5 is designed to manage the project’s resources, coordinate partners, committees and platforms, monitor progress and outputs and act legally, administratively and financially with the Commission, on behalf of the Consortium.
