The veterinary meet up is being held on Tuesday 6 August 2019 from 19.00-21.00 at The University of Edinburgh’s Royal (Dick) Vet School and is the first in a series of UK-wide ViVet Innovation Evenings.

The evening is for veterinary professionals who want to grow their knowledge, network and innovation skill set through learning from and connecting with peers in the local area. It aims to provide attendees with a chance to fast-track both their own personal career growth and their practices' transformative journey as innovation and new technology start to change how veterinary services are being delivered in the UK.

Anthony Roberts, our Director of Leadership and Innovation, will start by speaking about how rapidly developing technology is transforming the veterinary profession and our role in driving innovation.

Following this, Professor David Argyle, Dean of Veterinary Medicine and Head of School, and Professor Richard Mellanby, Head of Companion Animal Sciences, will provide an overview of the technologies and innovation being developed at the Easter Bush Campus.

“We are delighted to be launching these evenings which will support the wider aims of ViVet, to continue to accelerate innovation in the veterinary professions and sector. To put veterinary professionals at the centre of innovation in the animal health sector, it is important to bring people together to share ideas and grow our collective knowledge,” says Anthony.

The event is free and participants can register on Eventbrite. Refreshments and finger food will be available from 19.00 as part of the event.

Space is limited and we recommend booking in advance to secure a place.

Over the remainder of the year, more ViVet Innovation Evenings will take place across the UK. Details on these will be shared on the ViVet website and Eventbrite page.
