From Then to Now:
Our History

During the 17th JPC meeting held in Maisons-Alfort, France, all member states agreed that not all potentialities of REMESA activities had been fully explored and that there was a need to strengthen certain cooperation objectives within REMESA regarding networking and scientific skills.

During the 18th JPC meeting held in 2018 in Cairo, Egypt, on June 26-27, Italy proposed to enhance the REMESA strategy on networking and scientific communication and research by establishing the Scientific and Technical Office of REMESA (STOR).

STOR will serve as an extension of the Secretariat in Tunisia and will be based at the Istituto Zooprofilattico Sperimentale in Sicily, Palermo, Italy. At the 18th JPC meeting, a resolution was adopted for the creation of the REMESA Scientific and Technical Office (STOR), including its organization and goals.
