The Association: Foundation, Mission and Objectives:

The European Association of Establishments for Veterinary Education (EAEVE) was founded in 1988 and initially based in Maisons-Alfort, France. Later, the administrative office was based in Brussels, Belgium and since 2007, the seat of EAEVE and its offices have been in Vienna, Austria.
 

Mission Statement:

The vision for EAEVE is to be the official accreditation authority for veterinary education establishments within Europe.

The mission of EAEVE is to evaluate, promote and further develop the quality and standard of veterinary medical establishments and their teaching within, but not limited to, the member states of the European Union (EU).

The EAEVE/FVE evaluation system gives assurance to
•    the public – to know they can trust the quality of graduating veterinary surgeons and the service they deliver
•    veterinary students – to know their education reaches agreed and acceptable standards
•    veterinary establishments – to know that their curricula and School reaches agreed benchmarked levels
 

Objectives:

The primary objective is to monitor the harmonization of the minimum standards set down in the study programme for veterinary surgeons in European Union Directive 2005/36.  download  
This is enacted through the European System of Evaluation of Veterinary Training, which is managed by the EAEVE but with joint responsibility together with the Federation of Veterinarians of Europe (FVE). A list of Evaluated and Approved Institutions is maintained.

Other objectives are to reinforce cooperation between member establishments and to act as a forum for discussion in order to improve and harmonize veterinary education. Additional tasks are the facilitation of information exchange, staff exchange, student exchange and teaching materials exchange between members.

Members are the faculties, schools and universities involved in teaching and research in veterinary medicine and science. In 2021, out of the 110 Veterinary Educational Establishments existing in Europe, 101 are members of the EAEVE.
