The European Partnership for Alternative Approaches to Animal Testing's (EPAA) 2020 3Rs Science Prize is now open for submissions.
EPAA promotes the development, validation and acceptance of 3Rs alternative approaches (replacement, reduction and refinement of testing on animals). The 3Rs science prize is granted every two years to a scientist with an outstanding contribution to 3Rs.
This initiative promotes positive contributions from industry or academia and encourages more scientists to focus their research on the 3Rs goals. Scientists working on relevant methods for regulatory testing (e.g. safety, efficacy, batch testing) providing an outstanding contribution to the use of the 3Rs may apply for the prize.
The call is available on the EPAA website. Submissions must be sent via email to grow‐firstname.lastname@example.org by at 12:00 (noon) Monday, October 5.

ESTIV Applied Toxicology Course in October 2020
The ESTIV Training course aims at meeting this important need by training individuals who wish to start or pursue a career in this direction or to gain an update on the state-of-the-art of applied in vitro toxicology. This course is recognized by EUROTOX as eligible for European Registered Toxicologist (ERT) accreditation (topic B19).
The training course is intended for (post)doctoral students and early-stage scientists from industry, academia or regulatory agencies who recently became active in the field of in vitro toxicology. Applicants should ideally have a background in toxicology, biology, chemistry, (bio)medical sciences, pharmaceutical sciences, veterinary sciences or equivalent. Attendees are expected to be proficient in English. A maximum of 30 participants will be enrolled in the course on a first-come/first-served basis, yet priority will be given to ESTIV members. An open-book exam will be organized at the end of the course.
