  • call texts for grants, for example for the development of methods for the replacement, reduction and refinement of animal experiments, 3R
  • statements, standpoints or guidelines concerning laboratory animals
  • publications within the area of laboratory animals
  • communication efforts within the area of laboratory animals

The Expert Group also monitors, analyses and informs about laboratory animals in a national and international perspective and can represent the Swedish Research Council in various contexts where issues relating to laboratory animals are discussed.

Composition of the Expert Group

The Expert Group for Laboratory Animal Science has eleven members appointed by the Swedish Research Council's Scientific Council for Medicine and Health. The members must together have expertise in research using laboratory animals and in ethics. Six of the members are appointed on the basis of proposals from Swedish higher education institutions (HEIs) that conduct research in medicine, three based on proposals of from Swedish HEIs that conduct research in science, and one based on a proposal from the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, SLU.
