EPAA Annual Conference – Dissemination of 3Rs information

The Institute for Health and Consumer Protection (IHCP) to which ECVAM belongs to, wishes to draw your attention to the next Annual Conference of the European Partnership on Alternative Approaches to Animal Testing (EPAA).

This year the central theme of the Conference will be the Dissemination of 3Rs Information. A special EPAA task force has been set up to map the various existing means used to disseminate information on 3Rs, and to suggest potential new dissemination mechanisms. The results of this work will be presented at the Conference, focusing on the EPAA’s proposals for improving the accessibility of 3Rs information and for developing a platform for a quality dialogue with regulators. The Conference will provide all stakeholders with the possibility to share their views on the theme of dissemination, and on the EPAA’s proposals, in particular in order to help the EPAA do a reality check on their approach to the topic. In addition, the Conference will report on EPAA’s progress and achievements in 2009.

Date: 6 November 2009

Place: Charlemange Building, Brussels

More Information: The full programme of the Conference is available at the EPAA website.
