European Congress on Ethics of Animal Experimentation
The European Biomedical Research Association (EBRA) and the Federation
of European Laboratory Animal Science Associations (FELASA) have organized
a European Congress on the Ethics of Animal Experimentation, to be held
at the Palais des Congrs in Brussels, Belgium on December 17 and 18, 1996.
A represents researchers and research organizations across Europe who use
animals in laboratories. EBRA aims to promote a greater public understanding
of why and how animals are used in medical research.
FELASA consists of national or regional laboratory animal science associations.
The aim of FELASA is to promote optimal conditions for the humane and appropriat
e use of animals for scientific purposes.
Members of the animal research and animal protection communities have been
invited to attend the Congress and participate in the process. The Congress
will have simultaneous translation in English, French, and German. It is
extremely important that animal rights activists attend this meeting, too.
