About Us

The RepRefRed Society, the association "Gesellschaft zur Förderung von Alternativen Biomodellen", was founded on the 18th of January in 2016 by researchers from the three Austrian Medical Universities with the aim of promoting the implementation of the 3Rs (Replacement, Reduction and Refinement of animal experiments according to Russell and Burch 1959). In order to achieve this, the association focuses on the active exchange of information among researchers through topical meetings and events. The increased transparency of protocols should lead to a "refinement" (improvement of animal welfare) as well as a "reduction" (reduction of the number of animals used in experiments). The network should also help to strengthen the "replacement" of animal experiments in scientific research.
