Technology Foundation STW has awarded EUR 230,000 to the SMARTBREED project of Prof. Nicolai Petkov and Dr. G. Azzopardi of the Johann Bernoulli Institute for Mathematics and Computer Science (JBI). The grant is awarded within the Partnership Programme Breed4Food that wishes to develop more sustainable and animal friendly breeding.

The SMARTBREED project is a collaboration with the Animal Sciences department of the Wageningen University. It will apply big data and advanced machine learning on the genetic data of millions of animals gathered by the four breeding improvement companies involved with STW’s Partnership programme.
