The 3Hs Initiative – Housing, Handling and Habituation


Registration Details

Event date and time
The 3Hs Initiative

The 3Hs Initiative aims to improve the lives of laboratory rodents through refined management approaches which impact on lifetime experience and cumulative suffering. 

The framework was developed by a team of neuroscientists at the University of Bristol, led by Professor Emma Robinson, who have quantified animals' emotional experiences to build the evidence base for refinements to housing, handling and habituation.

This webinar will introduce the 3Hs concept, share their findings and demonstrate a new 3Hs website and online resources, including a CPD accredited training course.
