The 3Rs Knowledge Center (3RKC) is the central hub for 3Rs at i3S.
The 3Rs stand for Replacement, Reduction, and Refinement of animal experimentation. 3RKC aims to promote the implementation of the 3Rs through sharing knowledge and resources. Although it is based at i3S, the center’s resources are available to researchers everywhere.
An important part of the strategy of the 3R Knowledge Center is to produce new knowledge – to do research into the 3Rs.
The 3R Knowledge Center training portfolio includes a large variety of courses on 3R-related topics.
The 3R Knowledge Center research support infrastructure brings together different 3Rs relevant scientific platforms.
The center promotes public events and dissemination activities to promote the 3R in and out of the scientific community.
