Pioneering Better Science
The NC3Rs is the UK's national organisation which leads the discovery and application of new technologies and approaches to replace, reduce and refine the use of animals for scientific purposes (the 3Rs).
We collaborate with scientists and organisations from across the life sciences sector, nationally and internationally, including universities, the pharmaceutical, chemical and consumer products industries, other research funders, and regulatory authorities.
We fund 3Rs research, training and career development, support open innovation and commercialisation of 3Rs technologies, and stimulate changes in policy, regulations and practice relating to the use of animals.
Keep in touch
Our open innovation programme supports the development of marketable products and improved business processes with 3Rs benefits.
Setting out the NC3Rs vision for the next ten years, the publication is divided into five inter-related areas; Practice, Procedures, People, Places and Policy.
A Special Interest Group to connect technology developers with the business community in the development of non-animal technologies (NATs) for improved efficacy and safety testing.
