On Tuesday 28th June, the Group of Socialists and Democrats, the Centre for Alternatives to Animal Testing and the Johns Hopkins University have held a seminar at the European Parliament titled “science without animals in Europe?”


The event which was sponsored by Animal Welfare Intergroup Member Isabella de Monte (S&D, IT) brought together representatives of the Italian Ministry of Health, experts from the University “La Sapienza” in Rome, CAAT-Europe and Research4Life who discussed the legal  and scientific support in Italy for a roadmap that embraces new non-animal technologies such as in silico/in vitro tools and mini-brains to create a new economy build upon human–based models.

The discussion was geared to understand the advantages and concrete possibilities that a new non-animal based strategy can offer to achieve a more predictive science to humans and to generate a new impetus for economic growth.
