Date of news: 26 August 2022

An international consortium receives funding from the Dutch Research Council (NWO) to research how the acceleration of the transition to animal-free safety assessment can be governed. The consortium will be headed by Prof Ingrid Visseren-Hamakers.

The funding is part of the programme 'Non-animal models: acceptance and implementation' of the Dutch Research Agenda (NWA). In total, three research consortia will receive this subsidy.
