EPAA launches its 3R Laboratory Technician Prize

For the first time in 2013, EPAA will grant a €3000 prize to a laboratory technician involved in implementing and raising awareness of Replacement, Reduction and Refinement of animal testing.

While most of the current Three Rs prizes and awards target scientists, much of the processes using animals for safety science are actually performed by laboratory technicians and animal care takers.

The purpose of this prize is to target those actually implementing alternative approaches to animal testing and raise awareness of their role for the day to day implementation of Three Rs principles and, in particular, for seizing opportunities for further Refinement.

The EPAA industry partners will sponsor a 3000€ prize every other year, starting in 2013. The EPAA 3Rs Laboratory technician/care taker awardee will a be invited to the EPAA annual conference to receive the prize and briefly explain his contribution to the 3Rs. Further information is available on the EPAA website and in the flyer (PDF).

The deadline for submissions is set on September 16th, 2013.
