University of Plymouth has signed up to the UK Concordat on Openness in Animal Research. This means that we are committed to its four tenets:
- Clarity about when, how and why we use animals in research
- Communication with the media and public about our research using animals
- Opportunities for the public to find out about our research using animals
- Updated reports and sharing of our experiences
Data available on our web pages, including numbers and types of animals used, will be updated regularly.
