M-6E Weighing of interests – no obstacle for your experimental animal license application



Before performing an animal experiment a well-balanced weighing of interests has to be done. On the one hand, the researcher must search his conscience regarding the research project involving animal experiments. On the other hand, he/she is also bound by law to carry out a weighing of interests. What sounds simple in theory, is often not so easy in practice. And accordingly, there are always questions to the applications from the authorities.
Is the weighing of interests an insurmountable obstacle when putting together an application for an animal experiment? Not at all! We show you how to do it and what to consider.
This workshop is aimed at all those who will write an application to perform animal experiments. Young as well as experienced researchers are equally welcome.
