We are hosting a webinar to provide prospective applicants with further information and guidance on the Skills and Knowledge Transfer scheme and application process.
What is a Skills and Knowledge Transfer grant?
A skills and knowledge transfer grant supports the adoption of alternative, novel 3Rs models, tools and technologies within routine research practice, through the transfer of knowledge, skills and expertise. Applications from any area of medical, biological or veterinary research are within remit; those that integrate a range of disciplines are particularly encouraged. Awards are for up to 24 months with the amount requested dependent on the science and limited to a maximum of £75k (80% FEC). This competition is run annually and the budget for the 2018/19 call is £400k.
- The model/tool/technology, upon which the application is based, must be at a development stage appropriate for adoption by another laboratory. Some validation work to establish that the 3Rs approach is robust and reproducible in the end-user(s) lab is permitted.
- All applications to this scheme must include both the ‘developer’ and ‘end-user(s)’ of the model/tool/technology. Either party may be identified as the primary investigator, and the other(s) must be co-investigator(s) or project partner(s).
Joint CRUK-NC3Rs awards
We are pleased to announce a new collaboration with Cancer Research UK (CRUK) for the 2019 Skills and Knowledge Transfer grant call. CRUK will contribute up to £125k, in addition to the available call budget, for grants that seek to obtain 3Rs impact within the field of cancer research.
