RSPCA International workshop - China
Provision of advice on animal welfare, the 3Rs, ethics and legislation internationally is an increasingly important role for the Society. Our research animals team works closely with RSPCA International to develop and deliver courses relevant to laboratory animal science and welfare - with a particular emphasis on eastern Europe and east Asia.
Training events are developed at the invitation of legislators or laboratory animal science associations and are funded jointly (at minimum cost) by the organising bodies. They are tailored to the specific research environment and requirements of the countries concerned. Common topics include legislation, ethical review, training for personnel, the 3Rs and animal care. In addition to RSPCA speakers, experts from across academia, industry and government are invited to help deliver these events:
