EPAA Annual Conference 2012 - Global Cooperation on alternatives (3Rs) to animal testing - Brussels, 16 November 2012
Event date: 16/11/2012









EPAA partners are committed to pooling knowledge, research and resources to accelerate the development, validation and acceptance of 3Rs (Replacement, Reduction, Refinement) alternative approaches at an international scale.

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".
