European 3Rs webinar 22-24 Sept. 2020 clips available

3Rs webinar series organised jointly by six European 3Rs centres.

In 2020, the 3RCC held a joint webinar series with some of its European peers. The pan-European event The 3Rs Across Europe took place 22-24 September at lunchtime from 12:30 - 14:00 CEST.

3Rs researchers from across Europe presented their research projects. Everybody working with animals or interested in supporting the 3Rs from all career stages was able to attend.

The Swiss federation of veterinaries accredited the event for a half day of continuing education. The 3RCC expects to send the certificates to participants who attended the required 3h training in October.

The webinar was jointly organised by Charite 3R, 3Rs-Centre Utrecht Life Sciences, the Swedish 3Rs Centre, the Danish 3R-Center, the NC3Rs, and the Swiss 3RCC.

The clips for all presentations are now available on the NC3Rs website
