A total of £4M is available for infrastructure grants to accelerate the use of non-animal methods that replace the use of animals in scientific procedures. The funding is exclusively for non-research proposals that will increase the capacity and capabilities of the UK research base to use non-animal methods.

Multidisciplinary, cross-institutional, cross-departmental or cross-sector applications are of particular interest and proposals with an industrial partner are strongly encouraged.

Awards will be made for spending in the 2024/25 financial year. The maximum amount that can be requested is dependent on the need of the project. Equipment only grants should not exceed £500k.

Application forms: Available now.
Deadline for full application submission: 30 July, 4pm (BST).
