CARE training grants
Funding body: FENS
Application timeframe: Annual
The FENS Committee on Animal Research (CARE) offers training grants for animal research support staff or research institutions, in the context of the implementation of the European Directive on the protection of animals used for scientific purposes.
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).
