About the WC11 Congress

The 11th World Congress on Alternatives and Animal Use in the Life Sciences (WC11) is a congress with global outreach. Since the COVID19 virus is still present across the world – the event is presented in an innovative platform that will showcase the advances of IT Technology in a virtual, but realistic congress environment. The overarching theme for designing the scientific program is “3Rs in transition: from development to application”. The WC11 Congress is an excellent space to connect with people all over the world to gain knowledge, launch new ideas and brainstorm about the technological advancements supportive for realising non-animal test models of the highest grade and boosting scientific research in the 3Rs. The event will be held virtually from 23 August to 2 September 2021. For more details please visit the WC11 website.
