3Rs Project Funding

3RCC Targeted Call 2022: Putting 3Rs methods into effective practice

Deadline November 30th, 2022

Implementation can be defined as the bridge between an innovative approach and its wide-spread use. For many promising 3Rs approaches bridging this gap requires further research. The aim here is to fund research projects that can propose a comprehensive strategy to implement specific methods within a defined field of application. Projects can explore approaches across all the 3Rs, either in isolation or combination.

The total budget of a single proposal is expected to lie between CHF 230’000 and 460’000.
