The 14th conference of the International Society for Veterinary Epidemiology and Economics (ISVEE) taking place in the City of Merida, Yucatan, Mexico, during 3-7 November 2015 will focus on “Veterinary Epidemiology & Economics: Planning Our Future” and discuss how the ISVEE community can help to create adequate education, research, and public policy systems to respond to modern challenges – exactly what we in NEAT are concerned about as well! It is therefore very fitting that TWO OF THE KEYNOTE SPEAKERS ARE NEAT MEMBERS – namely Prof J. Rushton from the RVC and Prof Vitor Gonçalves from the University of Brasilia.
