The 3RCC Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) is responsible for providing scientific expertise to the 3RCC, evaluating grant applications and evaluating the progress and functioning of the center. The 3RCC SAB is composed of internationally recognized experts on 3Rs having expertise on 3Rs.On the 27 March 2018, the Swiss 3R Competence Centre (3RCC) was founded to promote the principles of 3R in the areas of research and education. It represents an association of academia, industry, regulators, government and animal welfare association including eleven Higher Education Institutions from Switzerland, the Swiss association of pharmaceutical industry (Interpharma), the Swiss Federal Food Safety and Veterinary Office (FSVO) and, the Swiss Animal Protection. The 3RCC also benefits from the support from the Swiss State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI), as it represents a scientific centre of national importance working on a non-commercial basis according to article 15 of the Federal Act on the Promotion of Research and Innovation (RIPA).
Situated in Bern, the 3RCC’s objectives are to:
- Promote research by subsidizing scientific projects of high quality and care for animals;
- Develop an educational strategy targeted at different educational programs; and
- Build a professional communication capacity available for all stakeholders interested in animal experimentation and 3Rs.
