Speakers at the ViVet Innovation Symposium 2019

Innovation Symposium videos and reports now available

Videos and written reports from the ViVet initiative’s second Innovation Symposium are now available online for those who missed out on attending the event.

The Symposium, which focused on the topic of precision medicine, connected veterinary professionals and stakeholders from diverse backgrounds to discuss the evolving role of the veterinary professional and the advancements in both companion and production animal care in the UK and across the world.

Featuring a plethora of inspirational speakers, the day saw a range of informative presentations and thought provoking discussions take place – particularly around the potential of emerging technology to improve the lives veterinary professional and the service they provide.

From discussions on big data and AI, to the complex relationship between innovation and regulation, to opportunities created by changing consumer demands – the event tackled some of the most significant developments the veterinary professions need to consider into the future.

Anthony Roberts, our Director of Leadership and Innovation, said of the day: “It was an incredibly positive day that provoked exciting debate about how the growth of data driven practice will affect the veterinary professional, the opportunities this presents and how we can collectively drive this forward. One of the key learning points from the day is a new understanding of how the veterinary professional can best embrace these technologies to support their decision making and further improve the care they provide.

 “I highly recommend anyone who couldn’t make it to the symposium to watch the newly published videos of the presentations and join the discussion about innovation within the veterinary professions.”
