Why this Summer School?
Non-animal approaches not only address the ethical aspects of using animals in science, but also offer huge advantages for conducting human relevant research and testing, whether it be for studying disease mechanisms, developing new therapies or ensuring the safe and sustainable use of chemicals.
Cutting-edge technologies including induced pluripotent stem cells, organ-on-chip, computational modelling and artificial intelligence are being exploited for world class science that benefits our society and supports sustainable development and innovation.
The JRC Summer School provides you with a unique opportunity to learn from experts in the field, share knowledge and experience with your peers, and build your professional network, all while having fun too!
Who can participate?
We are looking for enthusiastic students or early-career scientists (max. 4 years after masters or PhD) with a strong interest in non-animal approaches working in relevant fields of research and application.
The maximum number of participants will be 120.
We expect a continuous presence from all participants to receive a certificate of attendance.
Your presence during the whole summer school without interruption is not only important for the outcome of the event, but also for making the travel sustainable.
