2018 ANZCCART Awards - applications now open

Recognising those who care for the welfare of animals in research and teaching.

The Australian and New Zealand Council for the Care of Animals in Research and Teaching (ANZCCART) is calling for nominations to recognise the service and contributions of Animal Ethics Committees (AECs), animal care technicians and research assistants. These often hidden stars of the research system are essential for the welfare of the animals in their care, and this is an opportunity to recognise what they do.

They are also inviting submissions from tertiary education students to the ANZCCART Essay Competition, to encourage critical thinking around the role animal research plays in today’s society. Please consider nominating an award winner, or circulating the flier to those who may be interested in applying to the various awards.

For further award information and eligibility criteria, visit the ANZCCART Awards.
