Since its founding, EQAsce as startup of the International FoodNetCenter of the University of Bonn could gain experience in applying for subsidies for research and development projects, administrative handling and transfer of knowledge. Since 2020, EQAsce is coordinating several joint projects. All currently running projects are results of the prework in the international initiatives Public Private Partnership Animal Welfare, QVIREA and SMARTPORK. As follow-up projects they are based on the findings of previous research and development cooperation.
