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 9th International Conference on Emerging Zoonoses in Cali, Colombia, follows eight successful conferences, each of which provided an interdisciplinary forum for physicians, veterinarians, epidemiologists, immunologists, virologists, microbiologists, public health experts and others concerned with the ever increasing problems associated with the transmission of infectious diseases from animals to humans and the economic impact of transboundary diseases.
