About FVE
Sections EVERI

EVERI is an umbrella organization of national and European associations of veterinarians employed in the sectors of education, research and/or industry, founded in 2005. The objectives of EVERI are to provide members with up-to-date information on CoE and EU policies and legislation related to education, professional qualifications, medicines and welfare of laboratory animals, to provide a platform for veterinarians working in those fields, to promote professional representation at the level of European decision making bodies, and to be a coordinator between the different members and FVE. The constituent organization has members employed by academia, profit and non-profit research, pharmaceutical or commercial organizations, or act as consultants for these.

EVERI's mission is to promote the health and well being of man and animals by creating a better understanding with the general public of the benefits of research, innovation and education in veterinary sciences.

EVERI was officially welcomed as FVE Section during the 2005 November General Assembly in Brussels.

Extra Mural Studies (EMS project)

All veterinary students need to spend some time gaining work experience in the various fields of the veterinary profession. Veterinary faculties help in offering suitable places. And generally areas such as farm animal and companion animal practice are covered well. Less common areas do not immediately attract young graduates and are harder to find, while being not less interesting.

EVERI is providing an information hub to facilitate contact between students, the various colleges of specialization and private enterprises on a European and international level. EVERI is also aiming to establish extramural study opportunities, which fulfill certain conditions demonstrating content, ambition and contribution of the studies to the curriculum to be eligible for credits.

If you are interested please contact EVERI - ems.everi@fve.org - for the more information (places available, training period, funding,etc) and for the application form.
