etyka-620x500oIt is our great pleasure to invite you to the Ethical Dilemmas in Veterinary Education Conference, held by IVSA Warsaw in the Warsaw University of Life Sciences.

The EDinVE Conference will consist of 3 exciting days – two of which will be lectures, workshops and discussions, which will touch upon ethical aspects of veterinary medicine, dilemmas that we meet on our way to become a professional and after obtaining our diploma. We will talk about ways to improve our patient’s welfare and how to deal with ethically difficult situations. Experienced speakers from all over the world will get us through important, tough and controversial issues that we, as students, may not even be aware of.

On the 3rd and last day we would like to invite all of our participiants to join us and discover our wonderful hometown – Warsaw. We will explore the city together and have a great time, as we in the IVSA know very well how to relax!

The conference will be held in English.

logo%202017We proudly invite you to attend and participate in the VIII International Agriculture Symposium “Agrosym 2017″ to be held in Jarohina, Bosnia and Herzegovina during 5-8 October 2017.

AGROSYM is, since eight years, an annual platform for international scientific discussion on agriculture, food, rural development, environment and forestry. AGROSYM represents a good opportunity to exchange ideas, to strengthen existing and to create new academic networks, and to foster dialogue between the academia, public institutions, the private sector and civil society organizations on the recent global and regional trends in the agro-food sector. AGROSYM covers the following thematic areas: plant production, plant protection and food safety, organic agriculture, environment protection and natural resources management, animal husbandry, rural development and agro-economy, and forestry and agroforestry. Multidisciplinary results reported during AGROSYM will contribute to the dissemination of knowledge and good practices to all actors of the agro-food chain (e.g. farmers, extension agents, researchers, policy makers) as well as the general public about the importance of agriculture and food science, one of the most important strategic areas of many national research strategies.

The 7th edition of the International Agriculture Symposium “AGROSYM 2016” made an important contribution to the agriculture practice in different areas. During the four-day Symposium (6-9 October 2016), over 1100 contributions were presented to more than 1000 participants representing 78 world countries.
