Through the CARE committee, FENS works to promote transparency in neuroscience research involving the use of animals. This includes:
- Supporting, in collaboration with SfN, a series of workshops on improving openness in animal research across Europe, organised by the European Animal Research Association (EARA).
Workshops have previously been held in France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Portugal, Spain, amongst others.
- Organising topical debates and discussions at FENS meetings such as the Forum and FRM, as well as relevant partner events. Browse the FENS calendar to find out more.
- Collaborating with partners such as the Consortium for Public Outreach on Animal Research in order to improve public awareness of the responsible use of animals in research.
- Developing comprehensive, accessible outreach materials and collating useful resources.
