German Centre for the Protection of Laboratory Animals (Bf3R)

The BfR performs the role of the "German Centre for the Protection of Laboratory Animals (Bf3R)" and coordinates all associated activities nationwide with the goal of:

  • Reducing animal experiments to the necessary minimum
  • Providing the best possible protection for laboratory animals.

Furthermore, national and international research activities and a scientific dialogue shall be encouraged by the work of the Centre.

Mission and goals of the German Centre for the Protection of Laboratory Animals (Bf3R)

  • Intensifying research on alternative methods
  • Advice to authorities and research institutions
  • International harmonisation of alternative methods
  • Research funding of alternative methods
  • Provision of information to the public and experts

The activities of the German Centre for the Protection of Laboratory Animals are part of the Animal Welfare Initiative of the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) entitled "Minding animals - new ways to improve animal welfare".
