COST B24: Laboratory animal science and welfare

European Cooperation in the field of Scientificand Technical Research (COST) is an intergovernmental framework for European Co-operation in the field of Scientific and Technical Research, allowing the co-ordination of nationally funded research on a European level. COST Actions cover basic and pre-competitive research as well as activities of public utility. Established in 1971, COST has developed into one of the largest frameworks for research co-operation.

COST networks are called Actions. In December 2003, COST launched a new Action - B24. The main objective of the Action B24 is to increase knowledge necessary for both ethically sustainable and scientifically valid use of laboratory animals in research.
