PREPARE Guidelines from Norecopa

Norecopa has produced a set of Guidelines for Planning Animal Research and Testing.

The PREPARE Guidelines for Planning Animal Research and Testing:

NORINA Database

NORINA (A Norwegian Inventory of Alternatives) is an English-language database containing information on approx. 3,000 audiovisual aids that may be used as alternatives or supplements to the use of animals in education and training, including dissection alternatives, at all levels from Junior School to University.

Resources from NC3Rs

NC3Rs provides an extensive library of 3Rs resources.

Ressources fromResearch Institutes of Sweden (RISE)

RISE has produced two films about handling and training mice and rats

Resources from RSPCA

RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) provide information and resources that will help you to avoid severe suffering. All of the material can be used by anyone involved with the use of animals in research.

Resources from the European Commission (guides and posters)

EU guidance on how to achieve an effecttive animal welfare body touching upon topics such as resources, competencies, tasks and culture of care.

The posters can be downloaded, printed, and placed in work areas (for example in animal facilities and laboratories, universities, administrations or other institutions involved with the care and use of animals for scientific purposes).

Organ- and tissue sharing

  • SEARCHBreast (a resource to facilitate sharing of archived material derived from in vivo breast cancer models)
  • The EUPRIM-Net Project (brings together nine European primate centres that combine research and breeding to form a virtual European Primate Centre)
  • MiTO - Models in Translational Oncology (platform for the exchange of preclinical model data relevant in translational cancer research)
  • MIDY (Munich-MIDY-Pig-Biobank) (resource for studying organ crosstalk in diabetes)
  • AniMatch (an online sharing-platform facilitating the exchange of organs and tissues of lab animals used for scientific purposes)
