The Swiss 3R Competence Centre launches its first open call for projects addressing applied and basic research projects that support the development, optimization, application and implementation of new or modified 3R approaches, methods and technologies. The projects should have a high impact on the implementation of the 3Rs, improve the reliability, relevance and animal welfare as compared to existing methodologies, and propose a clear dissemination plan to the scientific community and lay audience. The funding programme will subsidize at least one project for each of the 3Rs in Switzerland with an indicative overall budget of CHF 1,200,000. The application deadline is 21 January 2019 at 23:59 CET. More info.
