New people in PPILOW project: Claire Bonnefous, Arthur Simoni, Vitor Ferreira
Claire Bonnefous (INRAE Research engineer)
After completing her agronomic engineering degree, Claire started working for INRAE on the PPILOW project. Dedicated to the identification of barriers and levers to animal welfare, she is taking part in the first task of the project (T1.1) to reference the main behavioural and health issues in outdoor and organic systems for broilers, laying hens and pig. To do so, Claire is not only looking through peer-reviewed articles but also conducting interviews in order to gather state-of-the-art information regarding current practices in these production systems. As her supervisor, Christine Leterrier, is the task leader of T1.1, coordination of the T1.1 is a consistent part of her work.
