The meeting was held on 8 and 9 November 2017 at the representation of the State of Brandenburg in Brussels.

Since 2014 scientists from seven research institutes in Germany, Danmark, Spain, Israel and Australia have jointly developed solutions for optimizing the climate in open ventilated dairy barns. From the beginning, decision makers and industry partners were integrated into the project work in order to have the practice demands in view and to promote the transfer of results from research into the practice of animal husbandry. Partners have experienced intensive and fruitful collaboration also in basic research and will certainly continue their scientific collaboration beyond the projects funding period. The final report for the Optibarn project will be prepared by March 2018.
