PIVAC History

PIVAC evolved from a series of European Commission-funded multi-national collaborative initiatives which originally supported annual meetings of project members, and remains primarily a European Society. In 2001, the 1st PIVAC conference was scheduled at the end of one such project (EUCAPS); thereafter, ESTDAB and ENACT until PIVAC 9 in 2009. Since then, PIVAC has existed as an independently-funded entity.
