Congress 2019
07.03.2019: EPAA offers two student's grants for EUSAAT 2019

The European Partnership for Alternative Approaches to Animal Testing (EPAA) supports students with outstanding work in alternative approaches by funding their attendance at EUSAAT 2019 with 2 grants. For further details please click here.

Congress 2019
19.02.2019: Please note! Congress 2019 postponed to 10-13 October 2019!

There will be many more participants at a major international sports event in Linz than the organizers had expected. This has led to the risk that the number of hotel rooms available will not be sufficient for our congress. Therefore, we have decided to postpone the congress from August to October.
