Joint congress of Veterinary Pathology and Veterinary Clinical Pathology


Dear Friends, Members and Colleagues,

We would like to invite you to the upcoming joint European Congress of Veterinary Pathology and Clinical Pathology (ESVP/ECVP/ESVCP/ECVCP) which is scheduled to be held on 31 August-2 September 2023 at the Lisbon Convention Center, in the beautiful, historical quarter of Belem, Lisbon, Portugal.

Last year congresses, in Greece and Serbia, were the proof that we do need a place to connect to each other. In a world where devices are clearly invading and demanding our time, it feels safe to have a place to gather, a community to share ideas, experiences, languages, viewpoints and mindsets.

The dream of organizing the European Pathology Meeting in Portugal has finally come true. We first applied to host this meeting 5 years ago, and we have been working since then to organize a successful and unforgettable event. It has been a rollercoaster ride, with doubts, hesitations and stressful moments, altogether with joy, enrichment and sense of accomplishment. We hope that this endeavor will be reflected in the fulfillment that each of you may feel after attending this congress.

It will be the first time that these two Societies and Colleges organize a joint meeting in Portugal, and we are preparing a thrilling, diverse and appealing program that will be of interest to all. With this joint congress we aim to highlight the importance of an integrated approach in deciphering animal pathology, providing the maximal interaction between the two specialties on a program built around state-of-the-art joint sessions, keynote and educational talks, workshops and more.

Lisbon is the mainland Europe's westernmost capital city and the only one along the Atlantic coast. It is one of the oldest cities in the world and the second oldest in Europe. It is an historical city full of history, where the sun shines 290 days a year and the temperature rarely drops below 15aC. A city full of authenticity where old customs and ancient history intermix with cultural entertainment and hi-tech innovation. Lisbon is ageless, and famous for its hospitality and family-like way to welcome visitors.

On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee we look forward to welcoming you to Lisbon.
