"Openness & transparency about animals in research - Dos, Don’ts and best practice“

Save as calendar entry

MBExC Special Online Lecture

This special lecture conveys why open and transparent communication about animals in research is necessary for continued support for biomedical research by the general public and political decision makers in Germany and the EU. While internationally, there are now several initiatives providing factual information on animal research, trying to balance the vast amount of lobbying and misinformation by opponents of animal research, these initiatives rely on broad support and individual communication efforts by the scientific community. The lecture will provide practical advice to all scientists and staff working with live animals or animal material / data and there will be room to discuss best practices, caveats, dos and don’ts.   

As an expert on all aspects of communication about animal experiences, Roman Stilling is active for the fact-based information initiative „Tierversuche verstehen“, which has been founded to transparently communicate with the public about animal research. This initiative is hosted by the Alliance of Science Organizations in Germany, a union of the most important German research organizations.
