EU Research Funding

The 6th Directive* is a Europe wide programme that aims to better understand the role of Porcine Circovirus diseases (PCVDs) in pigs. These diseases have emerged within the EU with devastating consequences for the pig industry and cost EU producers losses in excess of Ä600 million per year.

It will also help producers meet consumer concerns for quality and safety of pork products. The lead organisation is Queen's University Belfast and we are one of 16 partners from EU and North America.
