Diversity broadens your view

We hope that this edition of Vetscience international engages you in what we are doing in Utrecht and creates new sparks for possible future teamwork. This magazine is full of interviews with great researchers and teachers who have made significant achievements. Behind all these people are teams because impactful performance usually comes from collaboration. When we work together from different disciplines and (cultural) contexts, we move forward faster and more meaningfully.
