Annual Conferences

As announced a few weeks ago, the VPHI (Veterinary Public Health Institute incl. Animal Welfare Division, University of Bern), the ILS (Institute for Food Safety and Hygiene, University of Zurich) and the EPI (Section of Veterinary Epidemiology, University of Zurich) are organizing the joint “Annual Conference”, which offers a great opportunity to present and discuss ongoing projects in the field of veterinary public health including veterinary epidemiology, animal welfare, and food safety.

The event will take place on Wednesday 6th of December 2023 in Bern (Tierspital, NLG), and we are looking forward to welcoming you all there!
