CRACK IT 2016: Call for Challenges

Since 2011, CRACK IT has showcased 21 Challenges, invested more than £14 million, and has connected more than 170 organisations from industry and academia in 20 new projects to develop innovative products to address bioscience needs.

CRACK IT stimulates three way partnerships between the NC3Rs, industry Sponsors and the research community to provide solutions to global challenges in the pharmaceutical, chemical and consumer products industries. As the Sponsor of a Challenge you will be able to gain early end user input, and access to new technologies that will have 3Rs impact and deliver scientific benefits to your business. Further information on the role of a Sponsor can be found here.

We are now inviting submissions from Sponsors for Challenges which will benefit science, business and the 3Rs. The deadline for new Challenge submissions is 1 March 2016.

If you have an idea for a new CRACK IT Challenge for 2016, please follow this link for further information on how to submit your idea, or contact the CRACK IT team at
