Launch of New Refinement Funding Scheme

To encourage the implementation of established refinement techniques and approaches, the Swiss 3RCC is offering project grants of up to CHF 20’000.- in the 3Rs area of refinement. We are looking for proposals which also emphasise training and dissemination of methods. As such we would emphasise the use or further development of established refinement approaches (as opposed to research developing novel techniques).


This may be used to train existing staff in a particular group in the implementation of a new approach; assist in purchasing and training for new equipment; further optimise / validate an existing approach and teach and communicate the results; organise open Swiss-wide workshops to promote the use of one or more refinement approaches; or organise other efforts to encourage widespread use of an existing technique.
