Science-led and evidence-based, the NC3Rs is the UK’s national organisation for the 3Rs, established in 2004 to accelerate the development and uptake of new models and tools that replace, reduce or refine the use of animal in research and testing. We have shown that science and technology focused on minimising animal use or improving animal welfare, can deliver benefits to human health, protection of the environment and business opportunities.

To deliver this the NC3Rs, working with small consortia of universities, is appointing Regional Programme Managers who will provide dedicated 3Rs advice at the project, laboratory and institute level.
