Scand-LAS is promoting exceptional efforts for the society and for laboratory animal science by giving awards to members who have accomplished such efforts.

The Award of Honour is given to members who have furthered the interests and aims of the Society in an exceptional manner. This award is given either as a gold or silver medal.

The Lars Wass Award is given to a person who has during his/hers career worked in the spirit of Lars Wass. Lars Wass was one of the persons taking the initiative to establish Scand-LAS, and he understood the importance of education and training for people engaged in animal experimentation. The Lars Wass award was established in 2012, and is given every three years. Information about Lars Wass Award winners can be found here.
