Happy New Year!

The team wishes you a Happy New Year! We want to thank all our users that contribute to a change of research culture by preregistering their animal research. We look back to a successful year 2022. We have updated our website and presented preregistration and multiple occasions. We have intensified our collaboration with the center for open science and and published together common standards for the preregistration of animal research. We look forward to an exciting year with lots of promising events such as the 12th World Congress on Alternatives and Animal Use in the Life Sciences. Do not hesitate to contact us, if you want to get more insights on preregistration and other open science measures in animal research. We are pleased to give a virtual introduction into the topic and to discuss theoretical or practical aspects of preregistration at your institution. at the Bundesnetzwerk 3R

Join us at the next event of the German Bundesnetzwerk 3R on November 30. We will present our preregistration platform We are also looking forward to the presentations of other tools that support scientists in planning and conducting their animal study such as SMAFIRA, a searching tool for alternative methods or CIRS-LAS a reporting system for the recording and analysis of unplanned events in animal experimental research. The talks will be held in German. The registration is now open.
