What is vtk online?

vtk online is a free information platform on laboratory animal science topics. It was developed in the framework of the funding guidelines of Germany’s Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) on "Alternatives to animal experiments" and expanded through DFG funding.

During the implementation of EU Directive 2010/63/EU a new, modular learning and teaching concept was recommended (for information on this see under Modular training) and vtk online has been structured accordingly.
