This grant is meant to foster veterinary dermatology education in less well-funded countries. By providing financial support to highly motivated veterinarians from diverse geographic areas, who wish to attend the annual ESVD-ECVD congress or the world congress. As a sponsor you will help to nurture a new generation of dermatologists to bring them into our derm family.
We believe that this positive energy flow raises the horizons of the whole derm community, making it bigger, fresher and richer.

Impressions from grant receivers 2016;

I'm really happy, that thanks to travel grant ESVD I had an opportunity to be on the World Congress of Veterinary Dermatology in Bordeaux. 
The programme of congress was outstanding!
Such a pity, that visiting all the lectures was impossible, that's why printed and electronic materials of the participants deserve special thanks to organizers. Up-to date knowledge which I received will allow to treat my patients more successfully. Meetings with the collegues who are as in love in veterinary dermatology as I, and with the best famous dermatologists the world inspired me to go forward in my studying this subject.
Bordo enchanted me by its beauty and hospitality, conquered French cuisine and became a zesty of the Congress.
WSVD-8 was a grand event , which will remain forever a bright page of my life. A lot of thanks again to ESVD.
Klavdiia Kharitonova

I would like to thank very much ESVD for providing me with the grant, i would never be able to attend without that! I had really great time in Brodeaux, despite bad weather. Congress was great, I got many new informations about my beloved cat patients. I liked the new info about resistency of microorganisms, that MIC is not enought and microbiology labs can do better work for practitioners. I liked the lectures about nutrition and probiotics, it is good to know that there is science behing the informations I am telling my clients. One of the most important part of congress is networking, getting new friends and I got few really nice friends. That all would not be possible without ESVD support.

And you realize how big honor it is - to be a part of this veterinary dermatology world be! I met and had a chance to talk with so many inspired veterinary doctors that give me a new vision of my everyday work! Now I have a huge luggage of new knowledge that help me to do my work in best way!

I just want to say that I am very happy and thankful for the oportunity of attending the world congress. It was a joyful experience for me and i have learned a lot of new things that are so helpfull for a young vet as I am. Also was an honor to take part in this event with all lovers of veterinary dermatology worldwide.
So thank you all, it was nice meeting you and hope to see you safely to the next event.
All the best, 
Mihaela Pricopie
First of all I wanted to thank you for the opportunity you gave me.
Bordeaux is a beautiful city well connectd with very good transport giving me 
the chance to get to the congress centre easily.
For me it was the first world congress, and it was a wonderful experience.Very 
interesting topics were treated to the point that It was very difficult to 
decide what topic to follow.
I decided to follow the topic that best reflected in daily practice and have 
been very satisfied with the reports of the speakers who expressed themselves 
clearly and were ready to answer all our questions.
Also, meet colleagues from all over the world has given me the opportunity to 
confront myself on a professional level with different cultures.
I'm very satisfied of the organizatin of the congress, the social programm  
"meet and greet" in the amazing Bordeaux Opera,  the evening dinner in" Château 
Giscours" and the most exiciting time was the Dr. Carlotti memories and when 
they presented the awards.Overall very impressed.
Thank you,
Nunzia Florindo

Following your polite request for a brief summary on our recollections from the WCVD, please allow me to start with the expression of my gratitude for the amazing opportunity you gave me.I honestly had the time of my life at the Congress,but the most important of all is the impact this opportunity seems to already have on my life.
Living in a rural area in Greece, in a small provincial town of approximately 40.000 people, where women are still underappreciated as equal to men,in science and business, where dewormers, inj. steroids and antibiotics - even 3rd class cephalosporins- have been and still remain the vast clinical approach, receiving this grant from the ESVD was a wave of fresh air,of this amazing feeling that a scientific community needs your passion for excellency, needs your ideas, your possible contribution to science, if given the opportunities.Thank you for giving my life a different path to follow.Every lecture was amazing, but the workshops would just rock!! And all that for free for the Travel Grant vets.
I am so looking forward to seeing you next year in Switzerland.In the meanwhile, I am doing my very best to participate in your continuing education sessions.
Always and forever grateful
Yours faithfully 
Christine Kokka.
