The "3Rs in Meta-Research" meeting serves as a bridge between theoretical concepts and practical execution, providing evidence-based strategies for promoting the 3Rs principles (Replacement, Reduction, and Refinement) across various domains.

This event brings together a diverse community of researchers from multiple disciplines, experts, and advocates who share a strong dedication to the 3R principles and would like to explore in which ways meta-analysis and systematic review can facilitate and support their implementation. Through multidisciplinary dialogue, the collective aim of the meeting is to inspire meaningful advancements in the 3Rs paradigm.

Furthermore, during the "3Rs in Meta-Research" meeting we will officially launch the "Communities for Open Research Synthesis (COReS)" project. The COReS project is dedicated to embedding evidence synthesis into the preclinical research pipeline. During the event, we will introduce our digital hub website, which contains comprehensive educational resources on preclinical systematic reviews, gives methodological guidance, and provides a platform for seamless communication and collaboration on systematic review initiatives across projects.

We cordially invite you to join us at the "3Rs in Meta-Research" meeting and take part in the interactive sessions. Use this unique opportunity to learn more about COReS, explore our infrastructure and services, and discover the extensive community support we offer. Moreover, we will emphasize and discuss the critical role of systematic reviews in advancing the principles of the 3Rs and their significance in preclinical research.
