Held in JRC’s EURL ECVAM in November 2013
On 26-27 November 2013, the EU Reference Laboratory for Alternatives to Animal Testing (EURL ECVAM) of the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) hosted a meeting of the International Cooperation on Alternative Test Methods (ICATM).
On the first day, ICATM partners shared updates on their projects and activities, and widely exchanged information on their mandates, objectives, priorities, functioning, and interaction with other parties such as e.g. national/international regulators and stakeholders. On the second day, ICATM participants addressed further opportunities for cooperation with regard to a broad range of topics. Decisions and actions were taken to strengthen future collaboration; these include an agreement by ICATM partners to use the EURL ECVAM Tracking System for Alternative methods towards Regulatory acceptance (TSAR) as a common dissemination tool.
