Be Open About Animal Research Day 2021 - partner organisations & statements


The Be Open About Animal Research Day 2021 initiative (#BOARD21) was supported by 85 partners across 22 countries. To be a partner, institutions had to confirm their support by filling in the registration form, and sending a logo - many also sent in statements of support which were publicised on the day.


Partner organisations then had their logo displayed in the list of institutions (see table) and the logos of all the partners were shared on social media by continent.


Table: Here is a list of #BOARD21 partners (and a selection of their statements) by country.
