Role and mission
The Committee on Animals in Research (CARE) was established to advise FENS on the responsible use of animals in neuroscience research.
CARE’s tasks reflect the overall policy of FENS in supporting the appropriate and responsible use of animals in neuroscience research by:
- Supporting the development of resources on animals in research
- Promoting public education in matters related to the use of animals in neuroscience
- Providing expert advice and supporting the implementation of the European Directive on the use of animals in scientific research
- Contributing to international discussions and highlighting the importance of transparency in scientific research
CARE works very closely with the FENS member societies and its partners in order to fulfill its mission.
