The second day of the Annual Meeting 2013 of the Swiss Laboratory Animal Association was dedicated to 3R aspects. Nine talks focused on various aspects of 3R implementation, ranging from political statements, presentation of alternative methods to planning aspects of animal experiments. Moreover, publication of 3R research, in particular the poor availability of Open Access Journals, was critically discussed. The participation of more than 300 mostly young scientists indicates the growing awareness of 3R aspects in the scientific community. This will enable the realization of a challenge formulated by the first speaker, M. Stauffacher, ETHZ: “Words should be followed by action”.
