FRAME is pleased to announce the availability of three travel bursaries for participants in its next Training School in Experimental Design and Statistics. The grants have been made available by ecopa, the European consensus-platform for alternatives.
The bursaries are worth up to 600€ (about £425) and are aimed to help young scientists attend who might not otherwise be able to afford the trip. In order to apply, candidates must complete an application form and return it to firstname.lastname@example.org by November 11.
Full details of eligibility are on the form (download here: Bursary-Application).
The closing date for registration for the training school is just four days later – Sunday, November 15.
There are still a few places available but early booking is advised.
The school will be held in Voss, Norway, in February, 2016. FRAME training schools are aimed at young scientists who use animals in their research. Scientists do not always receive adequate training in experimental design as part of their undergraduate and post graduate studies. When scientists carry out experiments it is vitally important they are well designed, otherwise they may waste resources or give the wrong answers. This is especially serious when animals are used.
