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. Accordingly, there are always questions to the applications from the authorities.


In this lecture- and group-work-based course the participants will learn:

- more about the relevance of this part of the experimental license application

- tipps and tricks how to write a good balancing of interest text

- to understand different issues related to the balancing of interest and how authorities judge these argumentations.

This one-day workshop is aimed at all those who will write an application to perform animal experiments. Young as well as experienced researchers are equally welcome.
