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 12 months with the amount requested dependent on the science and limited to a maximum of £75k (80% FEC).
- The model/tool/technology, upon which the application is based, must be at a development stage ready for adoption by the end user(s) within only minor optimisation required. No further development work should be needed.
- 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).
Across all of our funding schemes in 2017/18, we are running a highlight notice for applications incorporating systematic reviews within their proposed project plans/ programmes of work. Potential applicants are advised to contact the NC3Rs funding team before submitting an application under this highlight notice.
We are hosting a webinar from 2:30pm – 3:30pm, 7 November 2017 to provide applicants with further information and guidance on the scheme and application process.
Those interested in the scheme can register for the webinar here.
