Meet your scientist on 3Rs

On 20/01/2015, in All posts, by Animal Welfare Intergroup



On Tuesday 27th January 2015 at 18.45 hrs, the Intergroup Vice-President Sirpa Pietikäinen MEP (EPP, FI), will open an event in the Members salon  of the European Parliament in Brussels which will see the launch of the  initiative “Meet your Scientist” on 3Rs (replacement, reduction, refinement of animal experimentation) .

The Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing-Europe (CAAT-Europe) is working on the establishment of a network of scientists for MEPs of the same nationality for better visibility of 3Rs  issues in the Brussels policy arena. This will give MEPs the opportunity to meet researchers from their respective countries to discuss and network about the use of alternative non-test methods and new technologies available to better ensure consumer protection. The research status of the Member States will be discussed as well.

For further information about the event you can contact the CAAT-Europe Policy Coordinator (Dr. Francois Busquet –,
