The PVM project is one of two agriculturally oriented K-projects, funded by the Comet Excellence initiative.
It is a composite of institutes from two universities and nine industrial partners.

Founding history

The project grew out of profiling activities of the University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna. In this process,
the Food Safety and Veterinary Public Health present one of the four main priorities. Through collaboration with the
University of Natural Resources as part of WWTF projects a broad basis was found
for the implementation of this project.
