The general objectives of CECA supported research are to advance our understanding of biological systems, improve the diagnosis and control of animal diseases, including zoonosis, as well as developing knowledge-based animal system of production.
Scientific programs in CECA take into account the European and Portuguese strategic plans for agriculture concerning animal health and production. Thus, research is directed to increase the competitiveness of the livestock production system, to improve standards of animal health and welfare, to prevent and control animal pathologies.
