EU3Rnet is a network of European centres working to promote one or more of the three Rs: Replacement, Reduction and Refinement of animal experiments.
EU3Rnet was founded in 2018, following an initiative by Professor Winfried Neuhaus at the Linz congress organised by EUSAAT.
The network published a consensus statement in 2021, signed by 24 centres, describing its aims. More centres are being added to the network on an ongoing basis.
The countries affiliated to EU3Rnet can be visualised on Norecopa's interactive global map of 3R centres and associations. A simple list of 3R centres can be accessed here.
EU3Rnet also considers it important to focus on Non-Animal Methods (NAMs) as part of its collaborative efforts. EU3Rnet will therefore endeavour to promote this approach, so that researchers do not consider animal models by default when answering research questions, and instead consider the range of Non-Animal Methods available, in order to avoid the unnecessary use of animal experimentation.
The network disseminates information on NAMs and advances related to the 3Rs to its members, who in turn will disseminate the information further through their communication channels.
EU3Rnet emphasizes the importance of involving all members of the research animal community in these efforts.
