President of the EMOP 2021 Organizing Committee
Scientific and technological developments are being made towards major global issues like parasite re-emergence, food and water-borne parasitology with one key health approach, to fight diseases.
The ongoing climate change, migrations of both people and animals, globalization of food and change in food habits, all contribute to the persistence of parasitic infections at a global level as well as their re-emergence.
The European Federation of Parasitologists (EFP) and the Serbian Society for Parasitology jointly organised the 13th European Multicolloquium of Parasitology, which will take place in Belgrade, Serbia on October 12th -16th.
The interdisciplinary conference will focus on human and animal health, but also on other fields in which parasites may be a challenge.
The interdisciplinary conference will focus on human and animal health, but also on other fields in which parasites may be a challenge such as agriculture and aquaculture, food technology and the food industry. As a major conference in the broad field of parasitology, EMOP 2021 will gather an impressive line-up of the globally most prominent experts, many of whom will be serving as plenary speakers, symposium organizers and invited speakers. The event will also host the annual meeting of the European Veterinary Parasitology College. As such an assembly of professionals, scientists and practitioners alike, the event will be of the highest interest to industry stakeholders such as pharmaceutical companies, medical laboratory equipment and reagent manufacturers, as well as publishing houses.
