The Seventh International Conference on Mycobacterium bovis (M. bovis 2020 for short) will take place in Galway, Ireland from 8 to 11 June 2020.

The Seventh International Conference on Mycobacterium bovis will gather together scientists, policy-makers, veterinarians and industry stakeholders from around the world with the aim of identifying constraints and providing practical solutions for the control and eradication of M. bovis.

Themes which are applicable to countries at various stages of control and eradication will be covered including – zoonotic tuberculosis, breeding for genetic resistance, vaccination of cattle, vaccination of wildlife, diagnostics techniques, programme policies, stakeholder involvement, surveillance strategies in cattle and wildlife and biosecurity.

Galway, the cultural heart of Ireland, has officially been designated as European Capital of Culture for 2020. The host of activities that are sure to whet your appetite include world renowned theatre, street performers, traditional Irish music and dance. Experience nature along the magnificent Wild Atlantic Way which stretches over 2,500 km of rugged coastline with spectacular scenery from County Donegal to the north and County Cork to the south. Staying in Galway, why not immerse yourself in the spectacular beauty and traditional Irish culture of Connemara.

We look forward to extending a céad míle fáilte (‘a hundred thousand welcomes’) to you all.
