As part of our commitment to the ethical principles of the Code, we offer an annual 3Rs Award
The Australian Code for the Care and Use of Animals for Scientific Purposes requires that scientific and teaching activities involving the use of animals consider and apply the 3Rs:
- replacement of animals with alternative methods
- reduction of number of animals used and
- refinement of techniques to minimise the potential impact on animals.
As part of our commitment to the ethical principles of the Code, we offer an annual 3Rs Award to recognise an individual or group who’s made an outstanding contribution to the field of the 3Rs and animal welfare at Griffith University. Applications close Friday 3 November 2017.
To be considered for the Award, applicants must meet the eligibility criteria and follow the procedures set out below.
The award will be a payment of $2000 to the successful applicant's centre or school to support the recipient's research activities, in accordance with University policies.
