„VetNEST Extended“: Winner of the CEEPUS Ministers´ Prize 2022! 12 Veterinary schools in 12 different CEEPUS countries offering highest standards in education with a wide range of topics.

This regional network, founded already in 1993, offers lectures for graduates as well as for undergraduates and opportunities like 8 different summer schools. Their experts are teaching in topics like Biosafety, Zoonose, Aquaculture, Exotic Medicine and Surgery etc.
Certain conditions of the membership were agreed upon to keep high standards, so the main prerequisite for the full membership is the accreditation by the European Association of Establishments for Veterinary Education (EAEVE). Therefore, all partner universities are active members of the EAEVE and this common standard helps the full academic recognition of the studies made in one of the partner institutions.
VetNEST is also involved in several additional activities within the “Lifelong Learning Program” framework and participates in many international projects with different fundings. So, VetNEST is regarded in several aspects as a “reference workshop” of the EAEVE as well as for CEEPUS. The network won the CEEPUS Ministers' Prize of Excellence in 2022!

Image Processing, Information Engineering & Interdisciplinary Knowledge Exchange

Dr. Sorantin, Network Coordinator and his colleague Dr. Lacekova

This interdisciplinary network is specialized on cooperation between medical and engineering departments. Especially in terms of Pediatric Imaging, one of the main focusses of the network, procedures and interpretation are even more challenging, because children are not simply “small adults”.

They differ, both in body proportion and composition, and their bones are still growing and thus show epiphyses, which should not be misinterpreted as fractures. Radiation protection is key as children are still growing and thus more of their cells are in the sensitive division phase. Children younger than 10 years of age carry a 3 - 4 times higher risk of incurring DNA damage and developing leukemia or solid tumors than adults at the age of 30 - 40. Also psychological aspects need to be considered. Infants and young children react instinctively to unknown and scary situations, their patience is limited. It is therefore essential to work swiftly and smoothly as not to overtax the patients´ endurance.

54 institutes are working together and due to the complexity of the subjects dealt with, the special experience of each partner is a valuable input for the whole network. The network won the CEEPUS Ministers' Prize of Excellence in 2020 !
They offer various exchange activities, research topics, common publications and a lot of enthusiasm due to their long term cooperation!

What our scholars have to say
Vedrana Petric
Exchange Student in Warsaw
The fact that I can say that now I have friends, real deep friendships, throughout Europe. Also, that I managed to finish all the courses in a completely different, but very interesting field of studies- environmental engineering. Thank you CEEPUS for giving me the opportunity to achieve this!
Dr. Bojan Lalic
Professor, University of Novi Sad
With CEEPUS it is more flexible and less bureaucratic than organising teaching at foreign universities in another way.
Prof Dr. József Gál
Vice-Dean of University of Szeged
CEEPUS scholarships open the horizons for our students and faculty staff to countries we do not necessarily know enough about. In addition to the classical semester mobilities, they also provide an excellent opportunity to gain short-term professional experience. Incoming teachers and students add colour to our academic year and provide useful information about their country, that can be of great value to future engineers.
