Workshop on Reducing Severity

February 27th, 2023,13.00-16.45, Online

This event is unfortunately fully booked at the moment. Due to this high demand we are working on finding appropriate dates for another workshop on the same topic. We'll keep everyone updated on those efforts as soon as we know more.

Reducing Severity: Implementation of supportive care measures in animal experiments

Animal experiments may induce different levels of pain, distress or suffering in the animals used.

Refinement methods can reduce such suffering or improve animal welfare. When applied to scientific procedures, they can significantly help to reduce the actual severity of specific procedures and models.

In this half-day, the free workshop we will introduce simple supportive measures and strategies to reduce suffering and improve animal welfare.

We have invited several international experts to introduce refinement strategies for their specific research areas. Participants will also have the possibility to exchange refinement options for their own experiments with peers and experts.
