IZSAM has implemented EU funded cooperation projects through the External Aid Programme and in collaboration with the Directorate-General for Health and Consumers (DG SANCO), under the European Commission's strategy "Better Training for Safer Food". Since 2007, the Institute has been a training provider of DG SANCO of the European Commission and every year it carries out courses for official veterinarians of the competent national authorities of Member, candidate and third countries. In 2011, the Institute received the award the first project of the European Commission for implementing distance-learning modules within the "Better Training for Safer Food" programme. The IZSAM becomes the primary provider of eLearning for European Public Veterinary Health, in collaboration with a qualified European partnership.




IZSAM is recognised by the European Union as one of the instruments for technical assistance to EU candidate countries, through Twinning projects, set up in 1998 to support Central and Eastern European countries in the process of adapting to EU standards. The Institute has a direct relationship with DG SANTE of the European Commission, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission (Ispra).




The IZSAM shares the Twinning philosophy and this has led over time to raise even more the level of trust that the European Union places in the Institute and its constant project activity.

Since the second half of the '90s, the Institute has cooperated with the Eastern countries, the former Soviet Union and especially the Balkan area, signing scientific collaboration agreements with specific institutions. IZSAM can boast a consolidated collaboration with all 27 countries of the European Union.
