Animal Welfare Research Award 2022: Apply now!

The German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) has announced the 41st Animal Welfare Research Award!

Research work is sought that contributes to replacing animal experiments or reducing their number. 

The deadline for applications is May 31, 2022.

In addition to scientific work that helps to replace or reduce animal experiments, work that contributes to improving the conditions in which laboratory animals are kept can also be submitted. The call for entries for the Animal Welfare Research Award is primarily aimed at young scientists. The prize has been awarded since 1980 and is endowed with 25,000 euros. The evaluation of the submitted research papers and the awarding of the prize are based on the proposal of an independent prize curatorship.

Further information on the application process can be found on the BMEL website.
