ALEXANDRA has been shortlisted for ‘The 2013 Lush Prize’
The Lush Prize for outstanding contributions to replacing animal testing announced its short list on September 20th for the 2013 awards and we are pleased to announce that the ALEXANDRA Association has been shortlisted for ‘The 2013 Lush Prize’ in Training category.
All of the short-listed projects have contributed to advancing animal-free safety testing, through scientific research, training, lobbying or public awareness in 2012.
Over forty projects from fourteen different countries have made it onto the final list, with successful nominations coming from as far apart as India, Brazil and New Zealand.
“This year’s short list is really impressive,” said Rob Harrison, a Lush Prize Director.
“Some of our nominees are influencing international policy on animal testing and some have even helped change national laws. It’s also great to see organisations making real progress in developing animal-free testing technologies and keeping the issue in the public eye through films and education. The global nature of this year’s short list also illustrates the global nature of the movement for change.”
£200,000 of prize money will be shared in 2013 across four areas with scientists, campaign groups, trainers and lobbyists all involved. The final £50,000 will go to young scientists with promising future careers. The winners will be announced at an awards event in London on November 13th.
