On 16 May, 2017, students of the University of Bonn in cooperation with EQAsce have made their way to Segovia in Spain to spend three days visiting the company PigCHAMP Pro Europa. In addition to their visit to an innovative experimental farm for pig research, the Swine Research Farm, the students have gained an insight into the work and data management of PigCHAMP. Besides conducting feedings experiments with pigs, this farm is mainly used for testing new technologies in order to simplify and improve data transmission throughout the entire value chain. Counting 20 employees, PigCHAMP is considered a rather small enterprise in Spain. Nevertheless, the company has come to offer their services, which include research, sampling, and even training courses for farmers and veterinarians, also to clients outside Spain and Europe. Participants of these training courses, which are approved by EQA, can further obtain an EQA registration number which is the key to extra occupational training worldwide offered by EQA-approved providers of knowledge.
