The Swiss 3R Competence Center publishes regular calls for funding of high-quality research projects dedicated to the replacement, reduction or refinement of animal experimentation.
The calls for projects are in the form of open calls and targeted calls i.e., addressing specific challenges for the advancement of the 3R principles in Switzerland. Each of the three Rs will be subsidised by the 3RCC funding scheme. You will find more information on the research grant subpage.
You are kindly invited to attend the Open Day for the launch of the 3RCC’s first call for applications:
22 November 2018, 14:45 – 16:45 Auditorium 110
1st floor Hochschulstrasse 4, University of Bern
The Open Day will give you the opportunity to gain an overview of the Swiss 3RCC’s activities, answer your questions related to the call for projects, and meet the 3RCC Directorate and colleagues involved in the 3Rs to animal experimentation in Switzerland. We will present the 3RCC’s structure & goals and provide you with information about timelines and eligibility criteria for the 3RCC Open Call launched on that same day. In addition, we will share with you the outcome of the survey on “Current gaps and opportunities for implementing the 3Rs in Switzerland”. Do not hesitate to forward this invitation to all your colleagues working and/or interested on learning more about the 3RCC. We would appreciate if you can let us know by Tuesday, 19 November 2018 if you will attend the Open Day by sending an e-mail to email@example.com.
