Scientific conference on “Towards the replacement of animals for scientific purposes”

The European Commission is organizing an on-line scientific conference on “Towards the replacement of animals for scientific purposes” to be held on 2 to 3 February 2021.

The conference aims to accelerate the move away from using animals in science and testing. It will be of interest to all those working with animal models or alternative approaches, or both, in any field of basic or applied science.

The main objectives of the conference are:

– To provide an update on the Commission’s strategic work towards the ultimate goal of Replacing animals in science by advancing non-animal alternatives.
– To illustrate how increased transparency on current animal use can help speed up the transition to non-animal approaches.
– To showcase the most recent scientific advances in replacing animal models.
