All partners have strong links through training, research and consultancies to the animal health services and livestock sectors of member states. And many demand economic advice for animal health decision making. NEAT covers the major livestock producing areas of Europe and supports areas where livestock are less important and where skills in the use of economics are relatively weak.

To ensure outreach of the consortium and education activities across the whole of Europe, NEAT is structured according to regional clusters and level of partner involvement. Four regional clusters (N, E, S, W) based on geographic and cultural characteristics reflect the diversity and different levels of use and need of economics in animal health across Lifelong Learning Programme countries.
