Saving animals with computers
In Eastern Europe, there is great potential for replacing animal experiments in higher education with animal-free teaching methods. Thus, animal lives can be saved with relatively simple means. Many teachers are open to modern computer-aided education. Mostly there is only a lack of information and financial resources. In cooperation with InterNICHE we provide help on both levels.
Overview of our projects in Ukraine (in German) >>
Half a year after providing teaching methods without animal experiments, we inspected their implementation in the Ukrainian universities at L'viv, Ivano-Frankivsk and Sumy.
Students used to have to capture stray cats and dogs for anatomical and surgical tutorials. That is now a thing of the past in the Nemishaev Veterinary Department of the National University of Life and Environmental Sciences of Ukraine in Kiev.
