Quantification, Benchmarking and Stewardship of Veterinary Antimicrobial Usage

Third International Conference

3 - 4 December 2020 @ Hannover
It is with sadness that, due to the current situation, we have to announce that the third AACTING Conference will be postponed to a currently unknown date in 2021. The University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover decided that events could not take place with the distance rules issued until the end of the year 2020. However, we hope that we can welcome you in the beautiful city of Hannover in 2021 for the conference and a cold drink on a warm summer evening during the Herrenhäuser Garden Festival or in winter with a cup of mulled wine at the Christmas market.

As alternative however, we are pleased to offer you an online presentation lasting two hours with two of our excellent keynote speakers, to take place on December 3, 2020. 

Find more information below.

We are looking forward to seeing you soon!
