Lunch webinar: The Swedish 3Rs project grant
The Swedish 3Rs Center welcomes you to a lunch webinar with a focus on the 3Rs project grant from the Swedish Research Council. Welcome on February 7!
We have invited Kristian Haller from the Swedish Research Council, who will introduce their research project grant for the development of methods to replace, reduce and refine animal experiments. The Swedish Research Council is a government-run agency, and awards around €1,3M to projects promoting the development of the 3Rs yearly.
Two researchers awarded 3Rs grants from the Swedish Research Council in 2022 will also present their projects.
Associate professor Anna Forsby at the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Stockholm University, will present her study on an integrated in vitro and in silico test strategy for estimation of developmental neurotoxicity.
Our second speaker is Lynne Sneddon, senior lecturer at the Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences at University of Gothenburg, who will present her project studying the use of analgesia to improve experiments on fish.
The webinar is held on February 7 at 12 pm, Central European Time.
The webinar is directed towards everyone with an interest in the 3Rs, and how aimed project grants can contribute to replace, reduce and refine animal experiments.
We have instated a national network for researchers and government agencies with interest in animal-free methods for research, toxicity screening and regulatory purposes. The network should facilitate contact and exchange of information between researchers and government agencies. When registering for this webinar you will also have the opportunity to join the network.
Please register no later than February 5
