Go3R - semantic search to avoid animal experiments

Organization name



Together with the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (Bundesinstitut für Risikobewertung BfR), Transinsight and BASF AG are expanding the first specialized semantic search engine for this research area called to become a global internet platform. In the future, experts from all over the world will be able to use this platform to bring together their knowledge on alternative and supplementary methods to animal testing.

Transinsight´s semantic search engine also finds related terms and web pages that are relevant for the respective search term and thus provides considerably more accurate and comprehensive search results than conventional full text search engines. "Go3R will make a tremendous contribution to improving the process of searching for information on alternative methods", states Dr Michael R. Alvers, CEO of Transinsight. "To achieve this, we are transferring the Wikipedia concept - the largest internet encyclopaedia compiled by the community - to semantic networks of terms. Currently, this is the most efficient way to achieve a large knowledge base within a short period of time and thus to significantly reduce the amount of animal testing in the long term", Alvers continues.

The platform is already available online. The service is free of charge.
