FGB Symposium


The Fondazione Guido Bernardini announces that the registration is now open for the Symposium "The three Rs in research project design: a prerequisite for good science", which will be held from 28 to 29 June in Varese, Italy



Principles of the 3Rs are applied to all aspects of animal care and study conduction in scientific research.

The main objectives of the Three Rs are to perform humane research on animals and to impact positively on the quality of research. A crucial role to the success of these achievements is due to proper experimental design.


The opening session of this symposium will focus on the importance of the Three Rs to achieve high quality science.


The registration fee, 500euro + 22% VAT, includes participation in the scientific programme, lunches, coffee breaks and shuttle buses (hotels-venue hotels)
