As an organisation striving for scientific excellence, as an institution where animal research is carried out, and as a modern-day employer of more than 200 staff, the CIN carries a threefold responsibility:
- We undertake to apply the best methods available to all our research and follow the established rules and best practices of scientific progress.
- We follow the most demanding standards based on humane ethical principles in our work with animals.
- And we aim to provide optimal conditions and opportunities to everybody seeking employment and career options in science.
This threefold aspiration for excellence not only in the outcomes of our work, but also in the ways we perform it is based first and foremost on transparency and understanding. Therefore, in these pages we offer you a thorough look into our mission and methods.
