Brussels, 28 Apr 2003
MEP Bob van den Bos will host a seminar on alternatives to animal testing at the European Parliament in Brussels on 7 May.
The main speaker at the event will be Professor Coenraad Hendriksen from the Netherlands Centre for Alternatives to Animal Use at Utrecht University. Professor Hendriksen will present his view of the current situation in animal testing alternatives and provide examples of successful alternative approaches. The event is the first in a series of AllChemE seminars.
'The increased consciousness of the necessity of the three Rs: refinement, reduction and replacement must lead to new European legislation [on animal testing] through which national laws will be improved,' said Mr van den Bos.
