Schweizerische Gesellschaft für Versuchstierkunde (SGV)

Die Schweizerische Gesellschaft für Versuchstierkunde (SGV) setzt sich aktiv für die Förderung der Versuchstierkunde und das Vorantreiben des Tierschutzes und der ethischen Erwägungen bei Tierexperimenten ein. Diese Ziele sollen durch die Organisation der Ausbildung und des Informationsflusses innerhalb der wissenschaftlichen Gemeinschaft erreicht werden.

Since 1987 we serve as an 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. Our dedication is 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".
