Two European Commission Reports, Holley et al (2016) and European Commission (2017), have reported that significant improvements in the communication of information on 3Rs resources and the development of alternatives are needed. One part of the solution to this challenge is to improve awareness of 3R conference and related scientific events. Therefore, this Events Calendar brings together relevant information on sector specific conferences, workshops, symposia and training (but not accredited training see ETPLAS for this). At present the events covered are international but with a large emphasis on European locations, with the calendar currently spanning from May 2018 to August 2020. As they become available, links to event websites and registration information are included.
Every effort has been made to find as many relevant 3R events as possible, but events are constantly being organised so we welcome any information on missing or up and coming activities.
To improve the effectiveness of the Events Calendar resource we ask for feedback on the following questions;
- Are there any gaps in the calendar in terms of, certain activity types, topics, locations, dates and access or cost?
- Are there any additional activities that you or your organisation could provide?
- Are there any additional activities that you think VetBioNet should organise?
Please send any feedback to email@example.com.
The meeting will be held from 26-28 August 2019 in Berlin, Germany, and will be hosted by the Friedrich-Loeffler-Institut (FLI), the German Federal Research Institute for Animal Health. Theme of the 13th Annual Meeting will be ‘Breaking Walls’. Referring to the city and as metaphor for the EPIZONE goal to improve international cooperation within the field of epizootic diseases research and control. Focus will be on current research efforts in the field of epizootic animal diseases of livestock a.o. cattle, pigs, poultry, sheep, goats, fish and horses. Renowned speakers will be chosen to give a broad, up-to-date overview of this rapidly evolving and multi-disciplinary field. Interesting selected poster and oral presentations, about recent research on the well-known EPIZONE themes including: diagnosis, intervention strategies, risk assessment, and surveillance and epidemiology of epizootic diseases, will be part of the scientific program.
The meeting shall bring together an outstanding and diverse group of experts from basic to applied science to foster scientific exchange and to establish new contacts or collaborations. Also in Berlin, the Young EPIZONE core group will organize an interesting and inspiring program for young scientists in the field of epizootic diseases.
The venue will be the ‘Kalkscheune’ right in the middle of Berlin.
We are sure that Berlin, the lively capital of Germany and a city of distinction, will be the perfect place to create a stimulating atmosphere of exciting talks, inspiring discussions, and scientific curiosity. We are looking forward to your participation and welcoming you in Berlin in August 2019! For more information, please visit the conference website: https://www.epizone.eu
