On 16 November 2017, the annual Veterinary Science Day was held at De Landgoederij in Bunnik. The theme of this year’s faculty science day was: ‘Mind your links – Link your minds’. The VSD focuses on the connections between the faculty’s research programmes, as researchers are not always familiar with who is working on what research. ‘Mind your links’ was the overarching concept to raise awareness of these connections, while the theme ‘Link your minds’ focused on the practical applications of one another's’ knowledge.
The day was divided into two sessions. During the first session, researchers from all eight departments presented inter-faculty cooperative projects. This gave an excellent impression of how to approach a research question from a variety of perspectives. Fundamental approaches alternated with clinical ones, along with technical and applied techniques, all geared towards answering questions common to all fields of research. The second session mainly focused on projects that have considerable potential for collaboration.
