Novo Nordisk cooperates with institutions and authorities on
guidelines for research, animal experimentation and environmental
issues. Furthermore, we contribute to the scientific community by publishing research
results and other types of data. A few examples are Novo Nordisk's
state-of-the-art housing conditions for laboratory animals used in the
textbook Comfortable Quarters for
Laboratory Animals and on the webpages of The National Centre for the
Replacement, Refinement and Reduction of Animals in Research.
Over the years, as we have learnt from engagements with stakeholders, we have moved from stakeholder dialogue to building partnerships.
participate in and form interest groups with the goal of sharing
best practise. Some examples illustrating the types of partnership
we are engaged in:
Novo Nordisk supports the EFPIA sponsored ‘ANIMAL TESTING PERSPECTIVES' blog created to encourage open debate on the use of animals for research purposes. We frequently meet with various stakeholders such as non-governmental organisations (NGOs), inter-governmental organisations (IGOs), governments and regulators, researchers, students and the press to discuss bioethical dilemmas. We participate in seminars, symposiums and conferences to share knowledge and views.
