BOVA is celebrating 20th Anniversary

BOVA UN (The Baltic Forestry, Veterinary and Agricultural University Network) was established in 1996 with the main idea to build up and strengthen academic collaboration as well as mobility and exchange of experience among BOVA member universities, namely, the Estonian University of Life Sciences, the Latvia University of Agriculture, Aleksandras Stulginskis University (former Lithuanian University of Agriculture) and the Lithuanian University of Health Sciences - Veterinary Academy.

This year BOVA is celebrating 20th Anniversary. Network members, guests from NOVA and other organisations are gathering on 20-21 October, 2016 at Lithuanian University of Health Sciences, Kaunas, Lithuania to celebrate this special occasion and discuss future collaboration together.
