The EPAA European Partnership for Alternatives (EPAA3Rs) 2022 3Rs Science Prize is open for submissions.

The 3Rs science prize is granted every two years to a scientist with an outstanding contribution to 3Rs. We want to promote positive contributions from industry or academia and encourage more scientists to focus their research on the 3Rs goals. Scientists working on relevant methods for regulatory testing (e.g. safety, efficacy, batch testing) providing an outstanding contribution to the use of the 3Rs may apply for the prize.
