3Rs Prize

The National Centre for the Replacement, Refinement and Reduction of Animals in Research awards an annual UK prize for an original contribution to scientific and technological advances in the 3Rs in medical, biological or veterinary sciences published within the last three years. The awards are part of the Centre's commitment to recognise and reward high quality research which has an impact on the use of animals in the life sciences.

Each year the NC3Rs awards a prize to highlight an outstanding original contribution to scientific and technological advances in the 3Rs, published in the last three years.

The award consists of a £28,000 prize grant and £2,000 personal award. Highly-commended entries receive a £4,000 grant and a £1,000 personal award.

The prize grant can only be used to support the further development of the 3Rs, for example, for research or training.
