The Swiss 3R Competence Centre:
- Promotes high-quality research and care for animals by subsidising scientific projects of excellence and quality on the 3Rs principle.
- Develops a 3Rs education strategy targeted at different educational programmes.
- Builds a network and communication platform, providing up-to-date information on the 3Rs principle and alternative methods to animal experimentation to stakeholders and all those interested.
The 3RCC also monitors progress made in the implementation of the 3Rs principle in Switzerland. It offers its services to authorities, teaching bodies and any other interested parties willing to gain additional information on the 3Rs principle and alternative methods to animal experimentation.
