University Biomedical Services (UBS)


In May 2014 the Concordat on Openness in Animal Research in the UK was launched with 80 signatories from all sectors of the Bioscience community. The Concordat commits its signatories to enhance their communication about their use of animals and the University of Cambridge is committed to working with the Concordat on Openness, setting out how they would be more open about the ways in which animals are used in scientific, medical and veterinary research.

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 provides public access to information held by public authorities. It does this in two ways: public authorities are obliged to publish certain information about their activities; and members of the public are entitled to request information from public authorities.

Disclosure of information should be the default – in other words, information should be kept private only when there is a good reason and it is permitted by the Act


In order to fulfil our obligation to Openness under the concordat, the University has taken the step to publish redacted AWERB Minutes proactively on this Intranet and our main University website.
