21st European Congress on Alternatives to Animal Testing
Johannes Kepler University (JKU) Linz
Address: AT 4040, Linz, Altenberger Str. 69
EUSAAT, the European Society for Alternatives to Animal Testing, is the European 3Rs Society. EUSAAT is actively promoting the protection of experimental animals according to the 3Rs-Principle (refine – reduce – replace) developed by Bill Russel und Rex Burch in 1959. Russel and Burch proposed to refine the experiments to reduce the number and the suffering of the used experimental animals and finally to fully replace them by advanced non-animal technologies.
EUSAAT is focusing its activities on all areas in the life sciences, which are relying on the use of experimental animals including the pharmaceutical, cosmetics and chemical industry, regulatory and basic sciences. To achieve these goals EUSAAT is hosting the European 3Rs congresses at the University of in Linz/Austria, which were started by local animal welfare groups in 1991.
We look forward to seeing you in Linz!
