|Date & Time||23 August - 2 September 2021|
The program of the 11th World Congress on Alternatives and Animal Use in the Life Sciences (WC11) will be online due to continued COVID-19 imposed restrictions, and will be spread over a two-week period, from 23 August – 2 September 2021.
Tune in on 26 August to hear Toni Andreu, EATRIS Scientific Director, speaking at the Congress about the “Reproducibility crisis in preclinical research”.
WC11 stands for “11th World Congress on Alternatives and Animal Use in the Life Sciences 2021”.
The Alternative Congress Trust (ACT) started in Baltimore, MD, USA in 1993 the first in a series of world congresses, to be hosted by various countries at two or three-year intervals. Over the years subsequent World Congresses (WC’s) have been organized in Utrecht (The Netherlands), Bologna (Italy), New Orleans (USA), Berlin (Germany), Tokyo (Japan), Rome (Italy), Montreal (Canada), Prague (Czech Republic) and Seattle (USA).
The 11th WC was supposed to take place in Maastricht, the Netherlands in August 2020 but was postponed to 2021 due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. The LOC, therefore, decided to organize WC11 as a full virtual congress.
The WC11 Virtual Congress online platform will provide a unique place for discussions of the most important topics in our industry and will bring together scientists whose knowledge and experience can be tapped for your benefit.
