The Swiss 3RCC contributes to a consortium that aims to develop interactive e-learning modules that help train the application of the 3Rs across Europe. This EU pilot project aims to harmonise the approach to training in the 3Rs to advancing animal welfare and scientific quality. The contract supports the development of two dedicated e-learning training modules for people interested in alternative (non-animal) approaches. SYRCLE the Evidence-based Toxicology Collaboration (EBTC) will develop Module I titled Searching for, and identification of, existing alternative non-animal methods and approaches, while the 3RCC and the Institute for In Vitro Sciences will develop Module II Developing reliable and relevant in vitro methods and approaches for scientific purposes and regulatory use. Once finalized, the modules will be available to professional course providers and will also be freely accessible on a dedicated platform to facilitate wide dissemination and harmonization of concepts.
