Poster Award for an Early-Career Scientist Presenting at the JRC Summer School on Non-Animal Approaches

Early-career scientists who intend to pursue a career in non-animal methods are invited to apply for an award recognizing the scientific merits of the poster they plan to present at the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) Summer School on Non-Animal Approaches in Science. This award, presented by PETA Science Consortium International e.V., will acknowledge one master’s student, PhD student, or early-career scientist (who obtained a master’s degree or PhD degree no more than four years ago) for a project focused on non-animal testing strategies.

The Summer School will take place online from 17 to 21 May 2021. Remote attendees will explore new developments in the field of non-animal approaches through expert lectures and interactive sessions, and each attendee will present a poster.
