NC3R’s Project Grants

Type of funding: Grant funding

The National Centre for the Replacement, Refinement and Reduction of Animals in Research invites submissions for its project grants. These support the development and application of new 3Rs approaches and technologies. Applications from any area of medical, biological or veterinary research are within remit; those that integrate a range of disciplines or include an industrial partner are particularly encouraged. The amount requested should be dependent on the science. Awards are for up to 36 months and funded at 80% of the full economic cost (FEC).

Deadline: 11/01/2022

Eligibility criteria:

Establishment eligibility
Any UK research establishment including: Higher Education Institutions (HEIs), Independent Research Organisations (IROs), Research Council (RC) Institutes

Individual eligibility
Applicants should be UK-based researchers who can demonstrate that they:

Hold a graduate degree – the minimum formal qualification required. However, it would normally be expected that an applicant has been awarded a PhD. Applications involving less experienced researchers should be made in collaboration with a more senior colleague.
NC3Rs grant holders with more than 12 months remaining on their NC3Rs grant, at the time of application, are not permitted to apply as a Primary Investigator for further NC3Rs funding (excluding CRACK IT, Skills and Knowledge Transfer and Strategic Awards – please contact the Office to discuss).

Overseas researchers may be included as collaborators.
