Welcome to EAEVE GA 2019

Dear Rectors, Deans, Colleagues and Representatives of the Member Faculties of the European Association of Establishments for Veterinary Education,


As Dean of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the University of Zagreb, it is my great pleasure to welcome you all to the 32nd General Assembly (GA) of the European Association of Establishments for Veterinary Education (EAEVE), hosted at the University of Zagreb on 30th and 31st May 2019.

We are particularly proud of the fact that the 32nd GA of the EAEVE coincides with the 100th anniversary of the enrolment of the first veterinary students at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in Zagreb, which marked the beginning of veterinary education in Croatia and the region. Since 1919, and right up to the present day, our institution has been the only institution of higher education in Croatia which has continuously raised up doctors of veterinary medicine, and thereby shaped the history of the veterinary profession and work.  At the same time, we also mark the 350th anniversary of the establishment of the University of Zagreb, the cradle of Croatian higher education and science.

The first of the two days of the 32nd EAEVE General Assembly will be held in the hall of the new Music Academy in the centre of the city, right by the Rector’s Palace. This is the EAEVE General Assembly. On the 31st May we will take you to our Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, which is located in the eastern part of the city, for the second day of the programme. The Barbecue Party will take place in the Faculty garden after the end of  the business part of the programme. The Faculty will open its doors to you in the afternoon and you are invited to visit it. The day will conclude with a Gala Dinner in the Crystal Ballroom of the Westin hotel.

We hope you enjoy your time with us in Zagreb!
