We encourage you to take part in a survey by Freie Universität Berlin on simulation tools. The Freie Universität’s veterinary medicine institutes for anatomy, animal welfare, epidemiology and biometrics are developing a new simulator that will be used in courses teaching the humane treatment of animals in experimentation. In order to better implement the 3R principle and as much as possible reduce the use of animals, the university wants to use a simulator that is produced with a 3D printer. The university is currently evaluating available rat and mouse simulators. All results will be included in the analysis that provides the basis for the new simulator. More information in German.
