STAAR aims to improve communication and transparency regarding the use of animals in research. It brings together both public and private organisations that either carry out, are involved and/or fund animal research or institutions which breed and supply animals.
STAAR's activities are planned and executed by two bodies: the plenary assembly composed of representatives of all signatories, and a working group that is responsible for the management of STAAR. Each year, a different institution is designated as the lead organisation and promotes STAAR at the national level.
