The RE-Place project in Belgium serves as an open access database, bringing together a wealth of expertise on alternative methods to animal testing. However, it currently represents only a fraction of the vast knowledge available in the country. We therefore urge scientists to contribute their innovative non-animal methods to the RE-Place database and enrich this valuable resource.

Over the past few decades, we've seen significant progress in replacing animal testing with alternative methods. The results are promising. However, given the rapid pace of development in this field, it can be challenging to find relevant, reliable and up-to-date information on such methods. To fill this gap, the RE-Place project was launched in Belgium to consolidate expertise on alternative methods to animal testing in a central database. This database links each method to the name of an expert and an organisation where the method was developed and/or is currently in use. To date, the database contains 280 methods contributed by 182 experts from 33 organisations.

However, this only scratches the surface of the wealth of expertise on alternative methods available in Belgium. We therefore strongly encourage scientists working with alternative methods to contribute their expertise to the RE-Place database. The RE-Place team is committed to supporting your scientific work. They will facilitate the exchange of information, provide networking opportunities and increase the visibility of your work through various channels, including social media, the website and educational webinars.
