|Description:||The combination of numerous obligations, time constraints and inflexible research structures often leaves little room for young scientists performing animal experiments, to address the 3R topic and ethical concerns in a satisfying manner. In order to overcome this predicament, we are driven to offer interested scientists the possibility of dealing with the implementation of the 3Rs in various contexts through interactive Design Thinking Workshops. Design Thinking is an innovation method that combines both analytical and creative methods to finduser-centered solutions in an iterative process. Here, we will present the results of the first five workshops that have been performed so far at different graduate schools and institutions in Berlin. This new workshop approach guides scientists through a difficult and emotionally complex topic and aims at training scientists in teamwork, an open-mindset and creative confidence - facilitating a change within the scientific community including awareness for the 3Rs.|
