Announcement from the Rector of WULS-SGGW

Monday 16.03.2020
IPałac Rektorskinformation from Professor dr hab. Wiesław Bielawski on the functioning of the University during the epidemiological threat

Ladies and Gentlemen,
Dear Colleagues,
Dear Students,

as the epidemiological emergency in Poland has been introduced, the academic community of the Warsaw University of Life Sciences is facing a difficult period of the fight against the coronavirus.

First of all, I would like to thank the employees and I would especially like to thank the students of our University for understanding and maturity related to the difficult decisions that the authorities of WULS-SGGW must take in order to protect us all from the consequences of the epidemiological threat.

I am asking all employees, students and doctoral students to comply with the principles set out in the communications of state and local authorities, especially the recommendations of GIS, guided by social well-being, as well as the well-being of our university. The situation will probably change constantly, so please follow the messages published and updated on the WULS-SGGW websites and social media.

In this extraordinary situation we are asking you to:

  • limit direct contacts to the minimum necessary with both the University employees and with people outside of the academic community,
  • in workplaces where personal contacts are particularly frequent (student dorms, reception desks, secretariats etc.,) take special precautions by ensuring appropriate conditions and safe distance between persons contacting each other (please mark the safe distance and provide clear information about the principle, and if it is possible – organize so called ‘buffer zones’ e.g. for documentation transfer),
  • introduce the rule of remote work in research institutes (where possible),
  • prepare didactic materials for conducting remote teaching of students, enable students and doctoral students distance learning in various forms such as remote lectures, consultations etc.,
  • suspend work-related trips abroad and participation of university employees, doctoral students, and post-graduate students in conferences held in the Republic of Poland; suspend domestic and international exchange of students and university employees.
    This also applies to all trips planned under the WULS-SGGW Scholarship Fund. These trips are postponed to a later date. Interruption of the Internship financed by the WULS-SGGW Scholarship Fund are possible, and the financing and settlement of the internships will be considered individually.

I would also like to ask you to take care of our retired employees and people at risk. It is them that should be provided with safe and comfortable work conditions in the first place. Let’s contact them and help them if we can.

Ladies and Gentlemen, let’s together  make the effort so that this period goes smoothly and in accordance with the principles of the academic community. I’m sure that with understanding of the situation and mutual kindness, these challenging processes will run smoothly, for the good of us all. I wish us all that we can soon return to regular learning and working conditions.

Wiesław Bielawski
The Rector of the WULS-SGGW

Animal Conservation – from Field to Lab

Thursday 5.03.2020

csm_IMG_7083_55f1d292b3Animal Conservation – from Field to Lab

13 July – 23 July 2020, Warsaw University of Life Sciences, Poland


Warsaw and field stations in North-Eastern Poland

Background of Summer School / Introduction

In modern world the human influence on natural habitat is the main threat to wildlife. There is an urgent need of understanding how we can manage and preserve populations of wild animals in changing environment. The aim of summer school is to show how different techniques (both field and lab) can contribute to animal conservation.

We want summer school students to have the opportunity to visit current conservation and management projects in Poland, as well as national parks and other protected areas, to learn and obtain field skills. They also will have possibility to meet experts working in the field of biodiversity, both scientists and practitioners (from Poland and other countries). Data collected in the field will be elaborated in the laboratories of Institute of Animal Sciences.

Maximum number of participants


The school is aimed at students of animal and environmental sciences who have already completed at least 2 years of basic university coursework



Course Content

  • biodiversity conservation at three levels (genetic resources, species, animals habitats)
  • ecological genetics – the use of molecular methods to support wildlife conservation measures
  • ex-situ and in-situ conservation
  • active protection of wildlife (habitat restoration, reintroduction, introduction)
  • alternative methods of livestock production as a tool in ecological engineering
  • wild animals population management (protected species, game animals, endangered species, ecological engineering)
  • species management  plans (different groups of fauna)
  • welfare of wild animals in captive breeding
  • data collection in the field and elaboration in lab

Intended Learning Outcomes (ILO)

After completing the course, the participants should

  • know wildlife conservation methods applied in the field and used in labs
  • understand the different aspects of scientific knowledge used in animals
  • conservation (biology, ecology, genetics, husbandry, etc.)
  • be able to prepare or evaluate animals population management plans
  • have experience in working independently and in international teams, involving parties from different countries, scientific background, approaches etc.
  • be more aware of intercultural diversity and gender aspects in life sciences

Course Schedule

Course Language

Course Format

The summer school will consist of classes, lectures, laboratory exercises, field studies, seminars. After 2 days of introduction in classroom we go for a 5 days trip to north-eastern part of Poland (Borecka Forest), to collect data of different group of animals (two main: amphibians and European bison). Then we come back to labs at SGGW in Warsaw to elaborate data and prepare final report.

Before starting the summer school we will organise on-line introduction and preparation to the course for all participants

Ethical Dilemmas in Veterinary Education Conference

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.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Warsaw!
