About this event

ANZCCART 2021: Openness in Animal Research

Queenstown, Aotearoa New Zealand | Copthorne Hotel and Resort Queenstown Lakefront

25-27 July

Nau mai, haere mai, welcome to ANZCCART 2021.

This year's conference looks at 'openness' in animal research and teaching. Public confidence in animal research hinges on the scientific community engaging in the evolving conversation about how and why animals are used. Being open about these matters is a worthwhile endeavour, and to be encouraged.

To gain a broader perspective on how openness looks in practise, we will examine overseas examples, both success stories and failures, and learn from different cultural viewpoints.

We anticipate that the adoption of new approaches to openness will reflect constructively on ANZCCART's principal objectives, particularly the Three R’s – the refinement, reduction and replacement of animals in research and teaching.

Science Media Centre: Savvy Express

As part of being open about animal research, delegates will be able to undertake a free Science Media Centre Savvy Express 15-minute media training session, offering one-on-one training for researchers, technicians or AEC members to practice speaking about their work for a general audience. Please book for a session when registering.

Communication skills workshop

The morning following the conference, join in a free workshop run by Kirk Leech, Executive Director of the European Animal Research Association (EARA). This will provide additional training for researchers, technicians or AEC members to communicate their work. Please book to attend workshop when registering.

Delegates should visit the New Zealand Immigration Service for the latest information. If you are not a resident of Australia or New Zealand, you may need to get a New Zealand Visitor's Permit. Certain nationals will need to have their passport endorsed with a New Zealand Visitor's Visa before arrival. This process may take up to one month.
