CARE training grants

CARE is offering grants of €500 each to support training in the context of the implementation of the European Directive on the protection of animals used for scientific purposes.

CARE grants

Two different types of training grant are available:

  • - Grants for animal research support staff: the aim of these grants is to fund support staff working with animals who wish to travel to another facility for training. 
  • - Grants for academic institutions: these grants should be used to invite experts to come to an institution in order to train that institution's animal research support staff.
  • Training should be focused on the 3Rs (replacement, refinement, reduction). 


  • The first 2020 call for applications closed in May 2020. Congratulations to the recipients:
