In 2010 Norecopa established a prize for outstanding efforts to advance the 3Rs (reduction, refinement and replacements) in connection with animal research. The aim of the prize is to increase awareness and use of the 3R principle in research. Special emphasis is placed on advances in research and development which benefit Norwegian conditions. The prize can be awarded for scientific, technical or administrative work.
The prize consists of NOK 30,000 and a diploma. It is awarded in connection with Norecopa's Annual General Meetings.
The deadline in 2021 is March 26. Nominations can be sent at any time of the year to Norecopa's secretary.
