Two European Commission Reports, Holley et al (2016) and European Commission (2017), have reported that significant improvements in the communication of information on 3Rs resources and the development of alternatives are needed. One part of the solution to this challenge is to improve awareness of 3R conference and related scientific events. Therefore, this Events Calendar brings together relevant information on sector specific conferences, workshops, symposia and training (but not accredited training see ETPLAS for this). At present the events covered are international but with a large emphasis on European locations, with the calendar currently spanning from May 2018 to August 2020. As they become available, links to event websites and registration information are included.
Every effort has been made to find as many relevant 3R events as possible, but events are constantly being organised so we welcome any information on missing or up and coming activities.
To improve the effectiveness of the Events Calendar resource we ask for feedback on the following questions;
- Are there any gaps in the calendar in terms of, certain activity types, topics, locations, dates and access or cost?
- Are there any additional activities that you or your organisation could provide?
- Are there any additional activities that you think VetBioNet should organise?
Please send any feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The seventh EAAP Webinar titled “Contribution and application of the Zebrafish model to the “One Health” concept” is organized in collaboration with the Horizon 2020 funded project VetBioNet – Veterinary Biocontained research facilities Network.
The first presentation will be given by Christelle Langevin from “INRAE” (France) on “Zebrafish as an in vivo model for biomedical and animal health research”. David Perez Pascual from “Institut Pasteur” (France) will then talk about “Gnotobiotic zebrafish model for the study of host-microbiota interactions”. Finally, Vincenzo Torraca from the “London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine” (UK) will make a speech about “Zebrafish Infection: from pathogenesis to cell biology”.
