CAAT Receives Award for Raising Standards for Animal Welfare

Eurogroup for Animals, which has been recognized by the European Parliament and Commission as the leading animal welfare organization in the EU, has awarded CAAT the award Partner Raising Standards for Animal Welfare. In the letter to CAAT director Thomas Hartung, Director Reineke Hameleers wrote:

"Over the years the Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing (CAAT) has in a strong and uncompromising way chosen a pioneering path of investigating into alternatives to animal testing, a choice that has and will positively influence the life of millions of animals."

The award was presented at an event in Brussels, Putting Animal Welfare at the Heart of the EU: A Plan to Deliver a Better Future for All Animals in the EU, held June 18th and 19th. 

CAAT Director Thomas Hartung expressed his enthusiasm about this recognition in a video address presented to the audience.
