How VET education helps industry and vice versa

The PTI of Kortrijk started a collaboration with Pertersime (world’s largest producer of incubators) for the construction of a real chicken house as a test lab in the school.

VET students and teachers breed every 6 weeks 500 chickens from 50g to +/- 3kg under different but standardized conditions. They feed and do the 2 weekly weighing of the animals. The data generated here is the basis for studies on feed conversion.
