Animal Experimentation Ethics Committee (AEEC)

The Animal Experimentation Ethics Committee is involved in drawing up the research policy on animal experimentation which is adopted by the Board of Governors. It examines and delivers an opinion on projects that use animals for scientific purposes. The AEEC must ensure that the use of animals for research and teaching at the University is compliant with the amended Grand-Ducal Regulation of 11 January 2013 on the protection of animals used for scientific purposes and the Act of 27 June 2018 on the protection of animals. The species concerned are those cited in the afore-mentioned Grand-Ducal Regulation, namely vertebrate animals and cephalopods.

For any planned experimentation, the AEEC ensures that the use of animals is justified, that their well-being is guaranteed and that the principles of replacement, reduction and refinement (the “3 Rs”) are applied.

To this end, the AEEC delivers an opinion on any projects carried out at the University involving the use of animals for experimental or other scientific purposes.
