In memory of Emeritus Professor Michael J. Day
It is with great sadness the EERVC team heard of the death of Professor Michael Day which was announced by his family on 11th May.
Michael Day was an extraordinary individual who shared his knowledge and expertise for the good of the veterinary profession worldwide. He was actively involved in the veterinary associations he engaged with, BSAVA, FECAVA and WSAVA and maximised the opportunities they provided to achieve good work to benefit others.
He was a founder member of the EERVC. The Board knows that the event would not have happened without Michael bringing all the relevant parties together – he was the catalyst that made EERVC possible.
In his own words, Michael shared his pride in the achievement with Denis Novak recently: “The EERVC is one of my professional achievements of which I am most proud. To think of what we have achieved, through hard work, in such a short time is astounding. I know that I also leave a firm basis for the future. It shows that we can all make a change in the world if we are committed to those changes!”
There will be a lot of words written over the coming days and weeks about Michaels amazing achievements throughout his career. For now, we would like to say what a privilege it was to work with such an inspirational person and how much we will miss such a dear friend.

EERVC2020 POSTPONED TO OCTOBER 8-10, 2020
The escalation of the number of people affected by COVID-19 worldwide has led to additional restrictions regarding travel and event organization.
Since we are expecting over 1,300 delegates from around the world and after a careful assessment of the situation, the EERVC Board has come to the decision to postpone the EERVC2020 Conference which has now been rescheduled to 8-10 October 2020. These dates will allow the EERVC to maintain the same scientific format, in the same city and convention center.
In the coming weeks we will be updating the website with new registration deadlines, new programme schedule and additional information.
The new deadlines for early registration have been applied according to new dates.
For further updates, EERVC Team will notify the participants, sponsors and exhibitors as soon as possible.

If you plan to attend EERVC 2020 in October, no action is required on your side. As a registered participant, your registration will automatically be transferred to the rescheduled date.
In case new dates are not appropriate for you, you have two options: to swap with a colleague or to cancel your registration.
- Swap with a colleague – If you cannot attend, you can transfer your participation to one of your colleagues who would like to join EERVC 2020.
