The BBSRC UK Veterinary Veterinary Vaccinology Network co-hosted the European Veterinary Vaccinology Workshop in conjunction with SAPHIR and PARAGONE on 9-10 May 2016 at the University of Gent, Belgium. SAPHIR (Strengthening Animal Production and Health through the Immune Response; http://www.h2020-saphir.eu/) and PARAGONE (http://www.paragoneh2020.eu/) are multinational vaccinology consortium projects funded by The European Union under the Horizon 2020 Programme aimed at technological development and demonstration of impact of livestock vaccines. Common to both projects and to the BBSRC UK Veterinary Vaccinology strategy is the generation of knowledge of immune responses that underpin the strategic design and development of vaccines that have end-user relevance. This was reflected in the programme of the meeting, with presentations by representatives from veterinary Pharma, veterinary consultants and academic researchers from universities and research institutes.
