Société suisse pour l'étude des animaux de laboratoire (SGV)

La Société suisse pour l'étude des animaux de laboratoire (SSEAL) s'investit activement pour la promotion de la science des animaux de laboratoire et de la protection de ces animaux ainsi que pour les considérations éthiques dans les expérimentations animales. Ces buts sont atteints grâce à l'organisation de cours de formation et par le transfert d'information auprès de la communauté scientifique.

The Swiss Laboratory Animal Science Association (Schweizerische Gesellschaft für Versuchstierkunde SGV) was founded in 1987. We serve as intermediary between animal welfare and research for the benefit of humans and animals. We are a key partner for the authorities, scientists and the public. We are dedicated to promote the 3Rs (REPLACE, REDUCE, REFINE) and the animal welfare and ethical considerations in animal experimentation.

We offer:

  • Every year we organize a two-day scientific meeting, as well as a symposium at the annual meeting of the Life Sciences Switzerland (LS2).
  • Our association initiates and supports different networks and working groups promoting the aims of the SGV.
  • Each year our society awards a prize to an outstanding contribution to the 3Rs and animal welfare in the field of laboratory animal science.
  • Financial support may be granted to young researchers attending training courses or meetings and persons who will actively promote and implement the 3Rs.
  • The SGV financially supports projects related to the goals of the SGV with the “SGV 25 years fund".
