Call | EC3R National and International Outgoing Lab Visit Program 2024

Travel reimbursement of up to €3000 will be provided to enable Berlin graduates to visit national and international 3R laboratories of excellence. With this program, the EC3R aims to allow young berlin scientists to learn about innovative technologies and applications of 3R research which are complementary to Berlin's scientific strengths and will therefore enhance local projects and enable graduates to start building their own international scientific network. Members of the EC3R will decide on the application based on the project description and suitability of the host group.

With this call, EC3R offers a national and international outgoing lab visit program for graduates and early career researchers who wish to learn about innovative technologies and applications of 3R research. This refers to all the three Rs – not to replacement or alternatives to animal models only.

Eligible applicants are Berlin doctoral students and early-career researchers* from the institutions involved in EC3R exclusively. (*This refers to researchers currently within their first five years of academic or other research-related employment following completion of their postgraduate research training and all members of the EC3R Juniors program.)

Requested reimbursement per person must not exceed € 3000 and is intended to cover travel expenses as well as accommodation costs. The visit has to take place between March and October 2024.

Please submit your complete proposal including the appendix in one pdf document in English via email to by December 10th, 2023, 23:59 CET.
