The EPAA aims to promote the development, validation and acceptance of 3Rs alternative approaches (replacement, reduction and refinement of testing on animals). The 3Rs science prize is granted every two years to a scientist with an outstanding contribution to 3Rs.
A selection board (composed of EPAA members and representatives of the EPAA mirror group) evaluates the submissions and provides the EPAA steering committee with the results of the evaluation and a recommendation on the ranking of the submissions. Based on this recommendation, the steering committee then endorses the winner and grants a €10,000 prize.
The prize will be granted to the institution of the winner to be announced at the EPAA annual conference, on 10 November 2020. The winner will have the opportunity to present their work at the 2020 EPAA Annual Conference, gathering regulators, industry stakeholders, academia and civil society. Applicants should, therefore, confirm that they are available on 10 November 2020 (to present their work at the annual conference if they win). Their travel and accommodation will be paid for by EPAA.
deadline for submission : Monday 5 October at 12:00 (noon)
