Società svizzera delle scienze degli animali da laboratorio (SGV)

La Società svizzera delle scienze degli animali da laboratorio (Schweizerische Gesellschaft für Versuchstierkunde (SGV)) s’impegna attivamente per la promozione delle scienze degli animali da laboratorio e l’incrementazione della protezione degli animali e le considerazioni etiche su esperimenti con animali. Questi obiettivi saranno raggiunti per mezzo dell’organizzazione dell’istruzione e del flusso d’informazioni all’interno della comunità scientifica.

The Swiss Laboratory Animal Science Association (Schweizerische Gesellschaft für Versuchstierkunde SGV) was founded in 1987. We serve as intermediary between animal welfare and research for the benefit of humans and animals. We are a key partner for the authorities, scientists and the public. We are dedicated to promote the 3Rs (REPLACE, REDUCE, REFINE) and the animal welfare and ethical considerations in animal experimentation.

We offer:

  • Every year we organize a two-day scientific meeting, as well as a symposium at the annual meeting of the Life Sciences Switzerland (LS2).
  • Our association initiates and supports different networks and working groups promoting the aims of the SGV.
  • Each year our society awards a prize to an outstanding contribution to the 3Rs and animal welfare in the field of laboratory animal science.
  • Financial support may be granted to young researchers attending training courses or meetings and persons who will actively promote and implement the 3Rs.
  • The SGV financially supports projects related to the goals of the SGV with the “SGV 25 years fund".

SGV Newsletter May 2016

It is almost 2 years ago when the SGV has published the last newsletter in summer 2014. We had quite some changes during the past 2 years like e.g. a complete makeover of our logo and website, including for the first time also animal pictures.
