Due to the increased and ongoing threat of COVID-19 and the advice from the Government, all scheduled ViVet Innovation Networking events have been postponed until further notice.

We are exploring ways to keep the conversations and (virtual) networking around veterinary innovation going and look forward to offering other engagements such as podcasts, webinars and resources online.

In the meantime, if you have any queries or would like specific regulatory advice and guidance please contact info@vivet.org.uk.
