LAL, through its UK registered charity, promotes
education and training in LAS, medicine, technology
and welfare.
LAL is dedicated to the furtherance of all aspects of
LAS education and training, with the aim of improving
scientific quality and animal welfare with a focus on the
3Rs: Replacement, Reduction and Refinement.
Historically, one of the means of furthering these
aims has been by the funding of a range of activities
carried out by LAL's European Subscribing
Associations, as well as activities in other countries all
around the world. For example, during the last 10 years
more than £500,000 (650.000E) has been given out in
grants to applicants from five continents.
Until a few years ago, the funds were assigned
mainly to activities conducted in Europe and to individual applications for attending courses. More
recently, the LAL Executive Committee and Council
of Management adopted a new strategy in order to
reach out to as many people as possible, funding

training courses and many other initiatives in countries with no or limited access to education and training in LAS.
Among the most funded type of applications is the
organisation of ''Train for Trainers'' courses in those
emergent countries, where European and local lecturers
work together to convey their knowledge. This process
usually involves LAL funding one or two scientists
from those countries in order for them to be trained
in Europe, with the intention of them organising
courses in their own countries later on, following the
European educational parameters.
Since the purpose of grants is to promote both the
teaching and dissemination of better practices in LAS,
any scientific society, institutions, scientists, students
and technical staff from any country can apply for a
grant. Grants are not restricted to members of LAL
Subscribing Associations.
LAL provides grants in many forms, including to
individuals attending training activities, support for scientific meetings, paying towards the expenses of speakers for congresses, organisation of workshops and the
translation to other languages of representative scientific articles from the Laboratory Animals journal. LAL
also funds the publication of proceedings of scientific
congresses, all kinds of educational audiovisual materials, databases and educational e-learning platforms on
animal experimentation and even text books for
courses. Currently, LAL allocates £55,000 annually
for the funding of grants in two announcements in
March and September, and the procedure for submission of an application is very straightforward.
Application details can be found on the LAL website
https://lal.org.uk in the Funding section. Download the
application form, and once it is correctly completed it
should be uploaded again into the same web page, as
well as supplying the personal data requested.
For individual applications, at least one letter of recommendation or support from the applicant's institution is required, and for any type of application, a
follow-up report is required during the year after the
funded activity has taken place.
LAL prioritises funding for:
- Applications associated with LAL's Subscribing
Associations' activities.
- Applications that have the greatest impact, such
as those that have a wide international exposure,
training courses following the train-the-trainer
concept or speakers who will present to the
widest audience.
- High-quality applications to ensure the highest
possibility of success and widest dissemination
of knowledge by competent and committed
applicants.
