The website of the European College of Veterinary Public Health (ECVPH) introduces the RiskSur project to its readership in a news article of 8 February 2013.
The European College of Veterinary Public Health covers the two subspecialities Food Science (FS) and Population Medicine (PM). Its primary objective is to advance these two areas in Europe and to increase the competence of those who are active in these fields. Read more about the aims and objectives of ECVPH.
The ECVPH was initiated by a coalition of European societies of veterinary epidemiology, acting under the aegis of the “Association pour L’Etude de L’Epidemiologie des Maladies Animales” (AEEMA) and the “Union Européenne des Vétérinaires Hygiénistes” (UEVH) and related bodies, which resulted from a growing desire to harmonise postgraduate training and provide certification in veterinary public health and its subspecialties, namely, population medicine and food science, in Europe. It was founded at the constitutional meeting held in Vienna on 26th and 27th February, 1999, in accordance with the "Policies and Procedures of the European Board of Veterinary Specialisation (1995)".
