Introduction TPI

Synopsis

With its Transition Program for Innovative animal-free research (TPI) The Netherlands has the ambition to accelerate the transition towards innovative animal-free research. This ambition by the Dutch Minister of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality is shared by a wide range of partners from industry, policy, academics and NGO’s. TPI brings professionals and other stakeholders from different sectors and fields together. It will identify drivers, connects parties and promotes ideas and concepts. Through an international and multidisciplinary approach, researchers, funding bodies, regulators and other stakeholders are encouraged to push their boundaries.
