Pilot Study Grants

Animal Free Research UK is awarding Pilot Study Grants to explore new ideas in animal-replacement research that could advance human health.

Pilot Study Grants of £5,000 provide short-term support for proof-of-concept studies for up to a maximum of 12 months. In 2019, we will be funding up to 10 one-year pilot studies.

The purpose of these grants is to allow researchers to explore new ideas in replacement research that might merit further development, and to enable the collection of sufficient data to assist in securing larger funding from Animal Free Research UK or other funding organisations. Pilot study grants are not available to ‘top-up’ existing research projects.
