Stiftung Forschung 3R
The Swiss foundation, Stiftung Forschung 3R (Foundation Research 3R), sponsors research on alternative methods to animal tests. It supports projects aiming at researching new methods or elaborating and validating existing methods in line with the 3R concept. The foundation is a collaboration between the parliamentary group for animal welfare issues (general public), Interpharma (Novartis Pharma AG, F. Hoffmann-LaRoche AG) and the Fund for research without laboratory animals, Fonds fuer versuchstierfreie Forschung (animal welfare). The web site provides an extensive compilation of links to relevant databases, organizations, and sites covering issues of animal welfare and laboratory animal science.
