FELASA, Federation of European Laboratory Animal Science Associations, represents over 4000 specialists in the field of laboratory animal science from 28 countries and 21 constituent associations. In 2018, FELASA celebrates its 40th anniversary and looks to 2019 to continue its work for the next 40 years.
It is therefore time to invite you to the 14th FELASA Congress that will take place on 10-13 June 2019 in Prague, the beautiful capital of Czech Republic.
This triennial congress has grown to become the largest European laboratory animal science event attracting almost 2000 participants. This congress is always organized together with one of the FELASA Constituent Associations, which gives us all a great opportunity to familiarize ourselves with the cultural features of different countries in Europe. This time our host will be CLASA, Czech Laboratory Animal Science Association.
The FELASA Congress is a scientific and educational event, offering current knowledge on the use and welfare of animals in experiments and how to make improvements in these areas: in Prague, the special issue will be the correct reporting of animal research. Animal welfare, ethical aspects, legislation and education are obvious parts of congress topics. We will also have the newest information and recommendations on how to work with aquatics and some other rarely used species.
FELASA Congress is not only science and education. It is also a large exhibition, showing the recent updates in animal care materials and equipment, animal use and health programs, and research equipment. You will have the opportunity to talk with the representatives from the companies exhibiting and get information on all new equipment, techniques and almost everything needed when working with laboratory animals.
And finally – professional and social contacts are something which are invaluable in a face to face environment. This is an integral part of the FELASA Congress: meeting colleagues from all over Europe – and outside –, renewing old acquaintances and making fruitful new ones by having informal conversations.
The FELASA Congress is the perfect occasion to combine continuing education with informal exchanges of ideas.
We are looking forward to meeting you in Prague,
President of FELASA
President-elect of FELASA
