DFG: Ursula M. Händel Animal Welfare Prize
November 5 All day
The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) is awarding the Ursula M. Händel Animal Welfare Prize, to honor researchers with outstanding contributions in promoting animal welfare in science and research. The research rewarded should contribute to reducing the burden on animals used in experiments, reducing the number of animals used or replacing them (3R concept: Refinement, Reduction, Replacement). The prize calls for researchers who hold a doctorate and work at a German research institution or for teams with a maximum of four researchers. The prize is worth up to €80,000 and is to be used for projects that benefit animal welfare in research. In addition to funding research projects, the prize money can be used to finance complementary measures such as training and professional development for researchers who work with animals or scientific events to promote the idea of animal welfare in research.
Application forms can be viewed and submitted between 2 October and 5 November 2023 via the DFG’s elan portal under “Proposal Submission – Nominations – Ursula M. Händel Animal Welfare Prize”. More information can be found here.
