The Institute of Veterinary Research (IVR) is managed by the faculty’s Research Director (vice-dean Research), who reports to the Dean and is supported by a Deputy Director and the IVR Office. The IVR management is advised by the IVR Strategic Advisory Board.

The main priority of the IVR management is to create and maintain a challenging and attractive environment for innovative research. This involves tactical and strategic planning of the faculty’s research profile and fostering strategic alliances with local, national and international research networks. In addition, the IVR management promotes the selection of leading scientists for senior faculty positions and scouting, recruiting and retaining of young potentials. Moreover, the IVR management facilitates external fund raising and the establishment of cutting-edge research infrastructure, which are also essential for ground-breaking research. Finally, the IVR management organizes internal and external evaluations in order to maintain or even enhance the quality of its research programs.

The Research Support Office
