The 2022 EURL ECVAM Status Report describes research, dissemination and promotion activities undertaken by the Joint Research Centre’s EU Reference Laboratory for alternatives to animal testing (EURL ECVAM) to further the uptake and use of non-animal methods and approaches in science and regulation.
The principle of the Three Rs, i.e. Replacement, Reduction and Refinement of animal use in basic, applied and translational research, as well as for regulatory testing purposes, is firmly anchored in EU legislation, with complete phasing out of animal procedures being the ultimate goal. This is achievable through a transition to new approach methodologies and models based on innovative non-animal technologies and better understanding of biology and disease.
The activities and results described in this report have only been possible through fruitful collaboration with EURL ECVAM’s many committed partners and stakeholders.
