Animal experimentation - 3R Research Foundation 2013 (€ 400,000)

The 3R Research Foundation Switzerland invites applications for its research grants. The application procedure comprises two stages. The deadline for submitting project outlines has changed from February 1 to May 1, 2013 (stage 1). For stage 2 applications for funding are received on invitation of the Foundation. The 3R Research Foundation provides financial support according to its principles for research projects within a broad biomedical field, in particular biological and medical basic and disease-specific research, developing new medicines and toxicological safety testing (methods for testing chemicals, vaccines and environmental pollutants) which indicate a promising outcome. The projects should:
• reduce the impact on animals used in animal experimentation; and/or
• reduce the number of animals needed for a specific research topic (animal model); and/or
• to replace specific experiments using animals. 

In 2013 a total of around CHF 500,000 (€ 400,000) will be available for new projects. The aim of the 3R Foundation is to promote alternative research methods to animal experimentation through grants for research projects.
