EBR 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.
