3RCC Open Call 2019

The 3RCC thanks all applicants who submitted a project for the 2019 call! With an increase in the amount of funding of CHF 1,375,000 available this year, we were happy to receive 96 outline applications from more than 20 different institutions for our second open call. We received almost double the number of applications, which shows the need for funding into the 3Rs. The average amount requested was about CHF 300,000 with an average duration of 2.6 years per project. More than half of the projects are related to replacement. The 3RCC Scientific Advisory Board shortlisted 22 outline proposals from over 10 different institutions. Half of the projects relate to the replacement of animal experiments, while about 30% aim to refine animal experiments and 20% focus on reduction. The most popular research fields are oncology, nervous system, reproductive system and immunology. Together with the five applications invited for re-submission from the 2018 call, the 3RCC expects to receive up 27 full proposals from which it will select the projects to fund. Invited applicants may now submit their full proposals until March 15, 2020. More information on the 3RCC’s grant programme can be found here: https://swiss3rcc.org/2019/06/01/3rcc-open-call-2019/
