On 3 February 2021, the Swiss Federal Council initiated a new national research programme "Advancing 3Rs - Animals, Research and Society". The main objectives of NRP 79 are to reduce the number of animal experiments in scientific research, to improve animal experimentation, and to develop basic principles on ethical and societal aspects in this field. The programme, which is endowed with 20 million Swiss francs, will run over five years. The Swiss National Science Foundation is responsible for the implementation of the NRP 79. The Swiss 3RCC is coordinating its activities with those of the new NRP.
