The 13th European Wildlife Disease Association Conference will take place from August 27-31, 2018 in Larissa, Greece. The EWDA Wildlife Health Surveillance Network meeting (August 26, 2018) and the annual meeting of ECZM (August 26-27, 2018) will take place in parallel.
To benefit from the gathering of wildlife professionals from all over Europe and beyond, the EWDA Student Chapter is organising a Pre-Conference Student Event on Sunday August 26th, 2018.
Combining these events will provide students with the opportunity to not only get to know peers, but to connect with leading scientists before the conference starts. We aim to assist the students in shaping their career path and update their knowledge in the field of wildlife diseases with the specific focus on how this knowledge can lead to a tangible outcome that can be measured.
The Sunday morning will start with an intoduction to EWDA and scientific lectures. After lunch interactive panel discussions and practical sessions will take place.
We will wrap up with a brainstorming session where student participants will be asked to provide input about what they wish to get out of EWDA Student membership and how these needs can be met better.
The day’s content can be further discussed during the cultural evening, whilst enjoying delicious food from all over Europe.
Thank you for your interest. Please do not hesitate to contact us for additional information. We are looking forward to seeing you in Greece!
