EU makes the use of animals in science more transparent
EU has launched its new tool, ALURES. It is a database for all member states. Everyone can now take part of when and how animals in Europe are being used in science.
To progress towards the ultimate goal of full replacement, it is crucial to understand where, how and why animals are still required to be used for scientific purposes.
The ALURES database offers free access to all interested in obtaining more information on animal use in the EU. The data are collected by the member states and submitted to the European Commission annually.
Non-technical project summaries
This means that all non-technical project summaries for every authorized animal experiment within EU shall be published in ALURES from 2021 and on.
