05.02.2016: Report on ARTE TV on Monday 8. February 2016

On the last day of the EUSAAT 2015 / Linz 2015 congress a team of 8 from the joint French-Germany cultural TV channel ARTE TV attended the congress and filmed several sessions, e. g. the YSTA (Young Scientists Travel Award) session and the "practical training course".

Finally, a fairly long report of 26 min on topic animal experiments will be shown in the XENIUS Science Magazine on Monday 8. February 2016 at 8:30 am and 5:05 pm (17:05).

It will be in German and French, the title is: “Tierversuche - es geht nicht ohne" (animal experiments - we cannot yet replace all of them) / “Tests animaliers, ne pourrait-on pas s'en passer?”

Links summaries of the report:
German: http://www.arte.tv/guide/de/056817-032-A/xenius
French: http://www.arte.tv/guide/fr/056817-032-A/xenius

My colleagues and I on the EUSAAT Board are quite happy that our efforts to refine, reduce and replace animal experiments will reach a wide audience!
