The European Partnership for Alternative Approaches to Animal Testing (EPAA) has launched calls for submissions for its ‘Refinement Prize 2019’ and ‘3Rs Student Grants’.
3Rs STUDENT GRANTS
Every year, a number of high-profile international meetings bring together world-class scientists working on the development and acceptance of 3R alternatives to animal testing (Replacement, Reduction or Refinement). Costs linked to participation may prevent students with promising work from attending these events. The EPAA partners proudly sponsor the 3Rs Student grants to facilitate the participation of students in such events.
