This year, we’ll be honored to host both meetings, aiming to encourage scientific and academic cooperation among researchers and Veterinary Educational Establishments (VEE) partners, by promoting different aspects of veterinary medicine and their value for the public good.

The event is intended to be attractive for all researchers, veterinary practitioners, official veterinarians, professors, PhD and post-doctoral students, offering a great opportunity to discuss the challenges and ongoing issues in the veterinary education and science.

The meeting will retain the usual popular format, including a number of invited plenary lectures, short presentations and poster presentations. The scientific program will comprise a number of professionally delivered presentations, selected by the Committee based on scientific importance and novelty on the following topics: animal health, animal welfare and reproduction, as well as public health and food safety.

We sincerely hope that this will be a unique opportunity for you to present your recent research work and results. Additionally, through the networking events and created intellectual atmosphere you will be able to meet, discuss and exchange ideas with your new and old colleagues in different fields.
