2022 ART award ceremony and conference

Please join us on Tuesday June 21, 2022, for this virtual conference to meet the first ART awardees that will present their exciting projects and learn more about the next ART SciComm and 3R award scheme for early career scientists. In addition, invited keynote speakers will share their expertise in the 3Rs and SciComm.

We invite all young life scientist organizations and individuals with a vested interest in SciComm and the 3Rs to participate at this conference and discuss their activities with the aim to share expertise from different countries and consider the potential benefits of cross-border networking.

Veterinary Students’ Assoc., plus individuals active in SciComm and the 3Rs. Please forward this conference announcement to additional young scientist organisations and individuals active in Sci Comm and 3R to increase participation.

Open moderated discussion including all participants
One possible aim could be to discuss how to promote exchange, cross-border interactions, and establishment of a Sci Comm and 3R community for early-stage scientists. Animal Research Tomorrow is willing to provide platforms and act to support young scientist initiatives through activities such as ART awards for young scientists.
