||EU-NETVAL's mission is to provide support for EURL ECVAM validation studies to assess the reliability and relevance of alternative methods that have a potential to replace, reduce, or refine the use of animals for scientific purposes. EU-NETVAL is coordinated by the EURL ECVAM, in close collaboration with Directorate-General for Environment (to ensure interactions with the National Contact Points for implementation of Directive 2010/63/EU on the protection of animals used for scientific purposes).
