The European Partnership for Alternative Approaches to Animal Testing (EPAA) is an unprecedented voluntary collaboration between the European Commission, European trade associations, and companies from seven industry sectors.

EPAA partners are committed to pooling knowledge and resources to accelerate the development, validation and acceptance of alternative approaches to further the replacement, reduction and refinement (3Rs) of animal use in regulatory testing.

Being aware of the fact that alternatives to animal testing can only turn into a real success if implemented globally, it has been decided that the lead theme of the 2012 EPAA activities – and, consequently, also the focus of the 2012 Annual Conference – is the "Development and Implementation of 3R methodologies through International Cooperation".
