european consensus-platform for alternatives

The concept of consensus between the parties concerned, i.e. animal welfare, industry, academia and governmental institutions has been accepted in various countries as an efficient way to stimulate research into alternatives to animal experiments and enforce the acceptance of alternatives in experimental practice.

The goal is to respond to the need for the creation of a pan-european platform. As well as a link being required between the different national platforms, consensus discussions with all relevant groups will maximise results and minimise conflicts within the 3Rs strategy. Jointly accepted opinions transformed into a strong plea has substantial impact on issues centering around alternative methods.
