|Relevance:||Reduction - Refinement - Replacement|
The Slovak National Platform for 3Rswas officially launched at the annual meeting of the Slovak Toxicology Society (SETOX) on June 21st 2018 at the Toxicology Conference TOXCON 2018.
The idea of establishing a 3Rs center in Slovakia was discussed among the Slovak scientists, regulators and industry as early as 2015. The concept of a national 3Rs centre was presented at the TOXCON 2016 Conference, organized by the Slovak Toxicology Society SETOX in High Tatras, and further discussed between members of the National Committee for Alternative Methods (NOVS) at the 2017 EUROTOX Congress in Bratislava.
As a follow up, the Ministry for Agriculture and Rural Development of Slovak Republic organized an informal meeting in February 2018 of NOVS members, invited experts in toxicology and pharmacology, representatives of the Slovak Academy of Science and academia, industry representatives and governmental organizations involved in the implementation of the EU legislation on animal welfare and protection. The attendees of that meeting fully endorsed the establishment of the Slovak National Platform for Three Rs (SNP 3Rs) to stimulate development and implementation of alternative methods in Slovakia.
The SNP 3Rs will operate with the support of SETOX and its mission will be to provide information, resources, and practical guidelines on the 3R principles in science, education, research and development.
Here is an overview of European 3R Centres.
