Every year, the ESVCN Congress is organised in a European city, hosted by the respective university.  The congress last about three days, covering a wide variety of topics in animal nutrition across the animal kingdom.  ESVCN carries both “veterinary” and “comparative” in its name, hence likes to attract a diverse range of contributions in order to stimulate scientific discussion leading to novel insights.
