Motto of the conference: NON SIBI SED OMNIBUS – Not for oneself but for all – NIE PRE SEBA, ALE PRE VŠETKÝCH
This Conference was different from those organised in recent years. The new reality means that we were not be able to meet in person. However, it also brought new opportunities, as it got rid of distance, barriers and borders, students had the opportunity to discover interesting scientific works and listened to great lectures. The conference programme included presentations by students and PhD students, as well as lectures given by famous specialists in veterinary medicine. They had prepared nine amazing lectures for participants. This was a great opportunity to meet and learn from the best.
