CECAV´s History

​​CECAV is the result of the merge of different departments from the Universidade de Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro into a research Centre entitled Instituto de Ciências e Tecnologias Agrárias e Agro-Alimentares (ICETA) in 1993. In 2001, in order to promote a proactive approach in the different areas covered by ICETA, it was decided to reorganize this structure into 6 autonomous research Centres. In the present time CECAV is structured in 3 research groups – Clinical Sciences and Pathology, Food Quality/Safety and Public Health, and Animal Production.
