Stiftung zur Förderung der Erforschung von Ersatz-
und Ergänzungsmethoden zur Einschränkung von Tierversuchen

Since 1987 the German set Foundation has been aimed to replace, reduce and refine animal experimentation through the active development of 3R methods. The Foundation consists of representatives from industry, animal welfare, science and government. Their role is the transparent, interdisciplinary allocation of funds to eligible research projects implementing methods to replace and complement experiments on animals. In order to maximise the effect, the set Foundation works to establish 3Rs methods with as many potential users as possible. Funding therefore extends beyond research projects to publications, symposiums, training courses and workshops. Dedicated to finding and developing new alternatives in animal experimenting, the set Foundation is committed to constructive collaboration among the stakeholders and on the personal and unbureaucratic exchange with applicants and their projects.
