The second Open Week by the signatory institutions of the Netherlands Transparency Agreement on Animal Research is now underway.
Events to demonstrate openness in animal research started with EARA providing free media training to Dutch researchers and communication staff, and on Monday, agreement signatory Sportvisserij Nederland launches a series of infographics and videos about different projects related to fish research.
On Tuesday, EARA member Wageningen University & Research releases a one-pager about research using animals for the benefit of animals.
Two EARA members then have events later in the week. Maastricht University (Wednesday) has a live online session with talks and a Q&A, while Charles River invites journalists, politicians, companies and other stakeholders to tour in its facilities and have conversations about animal research.
