Nordic webinars on the 3Rs

On 5 and 6 May the Nordic countries will collaborate to hold two lunch webinars about the 3Rs. The aim is to showcase activities and research within the 3Rs in the Nordic countries.

Flags from the five Nordic countries are waving in the wind attached to flagpoles. The Norwegian flag, the Icelandic flag, the Swedish flag, the Danish flag and the Finnish flag.

The Nordic countries will collaborate in two webinars about the 3Rs in May.
