Reducing the use of laboratory animals in research

Interspecies website

High quality research using fewer laboratory animals is a major challenge in many research areas. In 2006, the National Institute of Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) in the Netherlands launched the website to support researchers in reducing and refining the use of laboratory animals. A recent survey has shown that information provided on the site has led to a significant reduction in the use of laboratory animals.
