Animals used in science, testing and education
Eurogroup is opposed to the use of animals in science, testing and education which causes animals pain, suffering, distress or lasting harm. Our definition of ‘animal’ includes foetal, embryonic and larval forms.
Our primary goal is to end the use of animals for science, testing and educational purposes, by replacing them with humane alternatives. We strive for a paradigm shift in society, politics and academia towards a humane, modern and animal-free research and regulatory approach. We are convinced that much greater effort can and must be made to develop, accept, implement and promote experimental and test methods and approaches that either replace or avoid animal use.
