ReThink3R: Creating Awareness and Innovation for the 3R with Design Thinking // 16, 17, 22 & 23 March 2021

ReThink3R: Creating Awareness and Innovation for the 3R with Design Thinking

16, 17, 22, 23 March 2021, 1.00 – 5.00 pm. Registration is now open!
Attendance of doctoral students will be awarded with 1 ECTS-CP.
For registration, please visit the Homepage and fill in the registration form.

We invite you to an interactive workshop focusing on the 3Rs (Replace, Reduce, Refine). Think about new approaches regarding the 3Rs and or figure out why their implementation in your daily research is sometimes challenging. By using Design Thinking methods, you get an unbiased and playful approach to the 3Rs and find creative space to exchange experiences and work on ways to further implement these principles.

The course language is English. Ideally, participants in the "Rethink 3R" course have already gained initial experience in the field of 3Rs for finding highly innovative solutions. As a minimum level, participants are expected to read the information material sent out a few days before the course.

This interactive workshop only works with active and motivated participants, as this is essential for the teamwork and its results. Being shy for example is not a problem, but we need you to be engaged in this course. So please be sure you can relate to this if you register to the course.

If you have any questions, please contact c3r-education@charite.de

Best regards from Charité 3R
