Statement for Ukrainian veterinarians

EVSSAR as an European and international society aiming to support scientific cross-national exchange and friendships. Our society condemns the war actions in Ukraine. We sincerely hope that all our members and their beloved ones are safe and sound.

The Board has decided to waive the membership fees for our Ukrainian members for 2023. In addition, the Board has decided to offer a special registration fee for those Ukrainian vets who would like to attend the 1st ESAR symposium in Nantes. Ukrainian colleagues can participate at the same fee as a PhD Student or Resident (200 Euros).

We are determined to offer as much help and support as we can, to our Ukrainian veterinary colleagues and we are open for suggestions to further support the reconstruction and development of small animal reproduction (and beyond) in Ukraine.

On behalf of the EVSSAR Board,

The president,

Andrea Del Carro
