Public Engagement - funding
The National Centre for the Replacement, Refinement and Reduction of Animals in Research invites applications for its public engagement awards. These support NC3Rs-funded researchers to engage the public with the approaches being taken to replace, reduce and refine animal use in science. The aim is to share the benefits of the centre’s research to science and society, and promote thought-provoking events across the UK for a range of different audiences.
Applicants must be a current or previous recipient of an NC3Rs grant, fellowship or studentship. They must be based in a non-profit, academic institution. The events must take place within six months of receiving the award.
Awards are worth up to £1,500, and may be used to develop almost any type of event or activity aimed at the public, including laboratory open days, hands-on workshops, informal discussions with public groups, school visits, exhibitions as part of a local science events, or a partnership event with a local community group or scientific society.
Applicants must be a current or previous recipient (principal investigator/co-investigator or current research group member) of an NC3Rs grant, fellowship or studentship.
You can apply for this opportunity at any time. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, and are reviewed quarterly in the first week of January, April, July and October.
