22.02.2023: Joint meeting of the BfR and the Ethological Society


Joint meeting of the BfR and the Ethological Society

The Ethological Society (https://www.etho-ges.de) is a non-profit association that supports behavioural biology research in science and education. Behavioural research involves animal experimentation; a topic that is increasingly in the social discourse in its full scope and is mandated by the German Center for the Protection of Laboratory Animals (Bf3R, https://www.bf3r.de) within the framework of the BfR law. Therefore, this year the meeting will be jointly organised by the BfR and the Ethological Society.



The presentations can be found further down on this website.
