3Rs principles in WILDLIFE Research
A website about potential animal welfare issues and application of 3Rs principles in Wildlife Research.
Norecopa is Norway's National Consensus Platform for the advancement of "the 3 Rs" (Replacement, Reduction, Refinement) in connection with animal experiments. Norecopa was founded on 10 October 2007. Norecopa maintains this website with 3R-resources. The website consists of approx. 9,700 pages and currently has approx. 350,000 page visits a year.
EUSAAT - European Society of Alternatives to Animal Testing - The European 3Rs society
Website of the European Society of Alternatives to Animal Testing. EUSAAT, the European Society for Alternatives to Animal Testing, is the European 3Rs Society and is actively promoting the protection of experimental animals according to the 3Rs-Principle (Replace – Reduce – Refine). The society was founded in 1993 as MEGAT (Mitteleuropäische Gesellschaft für Alternativmethoden zu Tierversuchen) and changed its name to EUSAAT in 2008. EUSAAT is organizing the European 3Rs congresses.
EURL ECVAM dataset on alternative methods to animal experimentation (DB-ALM)
DB-ALM dataset is a publicly accessible collection of alternative method summaries and protocols. DB-ALM focuses primarily on methods submitted to EURL ECVAM for validation, and those identified in ad hoc reviews of the literature and end-users in specific application areas between 2000 and 2019. All method summaries and protocols can be searched in an intuitive web interface and then retrieved individually, but they can also be downloaded completely for flexible perusal on a local PC. Search criteria include topic areas, biological endpoints, experimental systems, and others.
EU Reference Laboratory for alternatives to animal testing (EURL ECVAM)
EURL ECVAM is an integral part of the Joint Research Centre (JRC), the science and knowledge service of the European Commission, located on the JRC site in Ispra, Italy.
3R SMART is an information and training platform for methods to replace and supplement animal experiments, which is aimed at both interested lay people and also scientists and technical personnel. The acronym 3Rs SMART stands for 3Rs training platform for methodological approaches to reduce animal experiments.
