Research in life sciences can involve suffering and killing of animals. Whereas the ethical dimension is fundamental in other disciplines (e.g. medicine), it is rarely discussed in biology. This trans-disciplinary event aims to encourage an open debate about the issues connected to research involving animals, by providing perspectives of biologists, philosophers and lawyers.

Registration isn't required but encouraged, because it helps us a lot with preparing the right amount of food and drinks for coffee breaks.
