This award was given to a young scientist (max. 30 years old) participating in the 2019 EUROTOX Helsinki congress presenting research on the 3Rs, and more specifically towards New Approach Methods (NAMs) without animal testing.
The ecopa Board or its representative select the contributions that best represent ecopa’s mission of 3Rs, either in terms of research or communication of the principles. The decision on the winner is taken by the ecopa Board or by its representatives during the Congress on the basis of the quality of the contribution (poster or oral presentation) and compatibility with ecopa’s mission.
The Board of ecopa assigns the Award to one applicant. The amount of the Award is normally 500 Euros per person, but the Board can increase the amount of the Award if warranted.
