Exciting partnership formed with Kerala University (KVASU)

Exciting knowledge economy partnership formed with the Kerala Veterinary and Animal Sciences University (KVASU) in South India.

The JMICAWE in collaboration with the KVASU and with funding from the
British Council, India Division will conduct a one year long collaborative
project aimed at strengthening the quality of veterinary teaching and
building capacity in the delivery of animal welfare training within the
curriculum. Three workshops will be developed and delivered to KVASU faculty staff to demonstrate how through a problem based learning approach, subjects such as animal welfare science and ethics can be incorporated into existing courses. Professor Natalie Waran, Director of the Jeanne Marchig International Centre for Animal Welfare Education says, 'this is an exciting opportunity to help develop veterinary teaching of animal welfare and we very much look forward to working with our colleagues in India to achieve greater awareness of the global importance of animal welfare science and the essential role of the veterinarian in this area'.
