Promote and strengthen the veterinary studies in Asian universities
The overall objective of ReVET project is to promote and strengthen the veterinary studies in Asian universities belonging to the Consortium. The ReVET Consortium is composed by 3 renowned European universities and 10 universities of 5 Asian countries (Thailand, Indonesia, Cambodia, Vietnam and China), The ULPGC is leading the Consortium. In an environment of continued globalization ReVET aims to create a convergence between EU and Asian Universities.
This will lead to two main results; first of all a better preparation of future veterinarians and secondly an easier recognition of credits among the HEIs of EU and Asia, which will improve the exchange of knowledge and encourage the mobility of professionals between the two continents. To this end, future veterinary doctors, prepared with the new and reinforced ReVET curriculum , will be able to meet new challenges on behalf of the civil society and future generations.
The project was launched on 24-26 February 2016 and will last three years.
