ECOPA Symposium in Paris

The European consensus platform on alternative methods ECOPA organizes its 2018 symposium on the 5th and 6th November in Paris

The ECOPA 2018 Symposium will be held at the Paris Diderot University - Paris 7, November 5 and 6, 2018. It is entitled: How new experimental tools in life sciences challenge the 3Rs vision? 


ECOPA is an European platform dedicated to the promotion of the 3Rs principle (replace, reduce, refine) in animal experimentation. This platform brings together authorities, academic and industrial research and animal welfare associations.

ECOPA acts by disseminating information on the progress in this field and by promoting exchanges between the different disciplines.

The members of ECOPA are national associations that share these objectives, among them FRANCOPA represents France and organizes this year the ECOPA symposium.

The program consists of scientific presentations on the progress made by research into alternative methods through new investigative tools.

New models, organoids, proteomics, scientific training, computer models and imaging will be discussed. The conclusion will discuss the progress that these advances make in scientific knowledge and medicine.

Registration is open until October 25th.
