ESDAR: European Society For
Domestic Animal
The society is a non-profitable community
with special emphasis on reproduction in
domestic animals and wild animals as well.
The society (about 200 members across
Europe and beyond) supports all activities
to stimulate education and research in the
field of reproduction, especially for clinical
Aspects, biotechnology and Physiology
of Reproduction. It was officially created
in December 1996, and venue of the
first ESDAR conference was Mariensee,
Germany, in November 1997. Since that
date an annual congress, bringing together
around 300 delegates, takes place in a
different European city (Thessaloniki in 2022
for the 25th annual conference).
ECAR: European College of Animal
This non-profit organisation was created in 1998 and
immediately recognized by the EBVS (European Board
of Veterinary Specialization), it has 273 graduates
present in 26 countries. The primary objectives of
the ECAR are to advance reproduction medicine,
reproductive surgery and biotechnology in Europe
and to increase the competence of individuals who
work in this field by establishing guidelines for postgraduate
education and experience, prerequisite to
becoming a specialist in animal reproduction. ECAR
examines and qualifies veterinarians as specialists
in animal reproduction so that they can serve the
veterinary patient, its owner and the general public,
encourages research and other contributions to
knowledge, and promotes the communication and
dissemination of this knowledge. A summer school
takes place each year often joints with annual
congress of ESDAR (as in 2022 in Thessaloniki) or
EVSSAR or a specific own ECAR Symposium as in
Vienna in 2019.
EVSSAR: European Veterinary
Society For Small Animal
The society is an international non-profitable
organization. It has been established in 1998
with the objective to further scientific and
clinical progress in veterinary and comparative
companion animal reproduction, pediatrics
and neonatalogy. Currently, EVSSAR has
about 200 members from European and
non-EU countries. Even though the emphasis
is on reproduction of companion animals,
other species such as laboratory animals,
exotics and wild or zoo species are also
considered as species of interest to the
Society. An EVSSAR congress takes place
each year bringing together approximately
250 delegates. Its 24th annual congress is in
2022 a joint meeting with the 9th quadrennial
International Symposium on Canine and
Feline Reproduction taking place in Milano.
450 delegates (practitioners, specialists or not, academics, residents in
training) expected for 3 days. A pre-conference the Summer School of the
European College of Animal Reproduction for residents will take place over
2 days, with practical workshops.
