Abstract

A recent study by the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission showed that although much knowledge exists on the Three Rs (Replacement, Reduction and Refinement of animal procedures), there is a clear need for better education, communication and outreach to enhance knowledge sharing and promote their uptake. The JRC is now completing an extensive overview of the Three Rs education and training landscape by mapping currently available courses and resources worldwide. In addition, it has launched a project to investigate the feasibility of including the Three Rs in educational curricula under a European Parliament Pilot Project, which aims to promote alternatives to animal testing.
