TWINNING TOWARDS EXCELLENCE IN ALTERNATIVE METHODS FOR TOXICITY ASSESSMENT
International project, funded by the European Commission under Horizon 2020, aimed to develop a better understanding of alternative methods for toxicity teasing.

WELCOME TO THE TWINALT PROJECT

Twinning towards excellence in alternative methods for toxicity assessment.

TWINALT is a joint international project, funded by the European Commission under Horizon2020, aimed to develop a better understanding of alternative methods for toxicity testing, exchange know-how with the partners and disseminate the knowledge for the scientific and social benefits.

THE PURPOSE OF THE PROJECT

MISSION OF TWINALT

Mastering new alternative toxicity testing methods
Implementing the 3R rule in scientific and commercial research by developing alternative methods.
Better understanding
Developing a better understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of alternative methods, creating the area for constant improvement.
Exchange of experience
Exchanging know-how with the partners and strengthen research position in the field of alternative methods for toxicity assessment.
Knowledge
Disseminating knowledge on alternative assessment methods for the scientific and social benefits.

BACKGROUND OF THE PROJECT

Ensuring safety of newly invented products, i.e. chemicals, pharmaceuticals, biocides, cosmetics, nanomaterials, should comprise a crucial part of their development.

Toxicity testing relies from many years on animal models, which – however providing indisputable benefits – raises more and more ethical and scientific concerns.

This challenge has driven an intensive search for alternative methods of toxicity testing, designed in line with 3R rule, advocating for replacement of animals, reduction of their number and constant refinement of available methods.
