Title: Three Rs Education and Training Courses and Resources


The purpose of the collection of these data undertaken between June and September in 2018 was to provide a snapshot overview of education and training courses and resources on the theory and application of the Three Rs principles (replacement, reduction and refinement of animal use in science) offered at high school, university and professional levels worldwide. The results include training courses and resources where the Three Rs were both explicitly and implicitly covered. The collection of information yielded 569 courses and resources, now provided here and provides data upon which the JRC can explore ways to support the Three Rs within an E&T context.
