After winning the lush prize in November last year, we are even more motivated to continue our Helpathon practice and making a difference in the field of animal free research.

Helpathon masterclass #2

After a successful masterclass #1 we will continue with the next masterclass ‘learning how to organize and facilitate a Helpathon’, starting on the 12th of May 2021. The duration of the masterclass is 6 weeks and includes 6 hybrid lessons given by various Helpathon experts (Sue Gibbs, Pepik Henneman, Jantine Wijnja and others). Besides the group lessons we will read, listen, imagine and very important: practice! You will experience how it is to work with a Helpathon mindset.

“What a great process is the helpathon, I'm a fan! The openness and willingness to get somewhere together is very inspiring.”

There are still places available for the Helpathon masterclass (20 in total). Are you curious to learn how to organise your own Helpathon?

International TPI-Helpathon #5

We are happy to announce that Helpathon #5 is coming up. We are planning to organise this Helpathon in June 2021. New in this Helpathon is that we explicitly invite members of the Animal Experiments Committees and Health research financiers/Health Funds, besides everyone else who is willing to help and think along.

Are you wondering how you and your organisation can contribute to the shift from current research practice towards animal free research practice? Do you have a relevant question regarding your research(models) but never knew who to ask. Let the Helpathon team help you! We have three spaces available for researchers, Animal Experiments Committee members, financiers and others who are involved in the field of health research to ask their questions for the coming Helpathon.
