16th EPV annual symposium 


On 22nd-23rd September, our annual meeting was held in the beautiful city of Toulouse, France. The board members of the EPV worked hard to put together an exciting and broad scientific program.

The annual meeting is known to facilitate exchange information and continuous education, as well as to enjoy a good time with colleagues. A big thanks goes out to all of you!

   EPV will join the European Animal Research Association (EARA). The EARA has been established to inform the European public on the continued need for, and benefit of, the humane use of animals in biomedical research; and to lead a coordinated response to the pressure on the laboratory animal supply chain, and the license to use laboratory animals in research. It seeks to provide support, advocacy and reliable communication on behalf of public and private researchers at both national and European levels
