Dear Vetmeduni researchers, PostDocs, PhD and doctoral students!
We are happy to invite you to our Science Day 2021. Vetmeduni´s festival for its researchers, to honor your achievements, and to provide you a platform to connect and to network.
We will award this year´s scientific prizes, do the "jumbled poster walk" again and listen to the VetIdeas challenge winner´s pitch.
Our special pleasure is to announce an exciting panel discussion with two dedicated guest speakers, who will take a look into the changes and challenges they expect we will be facing in the coming 20 years and discuss their potential implications for the veterinary sector. For sure some food for thought for the networking time afterwards, with live music by "Air of Jasmine", drinks powered by ÖH-Bar, and delicious buffet-style food!
See you there!


Key Note

Veterinary Medicine in 2030 – Trends and Perspectives

Heiko Färber, CEO of the German Veterinary Association, and Matthias Horx, trend scout and futurologist, will discuss with VetWoman Clair Firth  their visions of the future of society and the economy in general, and the role of veterinary medicine in particular.



Jumbled Teams Poster Walk with public vote for Best Poster

Enjoy our fun networking event. Jumbled teams of three to four people will get 30 minutes time to judge up to five scientific posters and so contribute to the public choice of the Best Poster which will be announced right after the key-note speech.



"Air of Jasmine"  will performe soul music, that celebrates the emotional and cultural versatility of life. With Vetmeduni Vienna alumnus Jeff Schreiner (piano), Berni Mühl (guitar), Beni Weber (percussion) and Jasmine Friedrich (voice). Curious?
