Renewal of project plans

All project plans are valid for two years before expiring after which you must renew it. 

From 1 January in the new year, only project plans starting with a P-number from the new year and project plans with a P-number from the previous year are valid (for example, in 2015 only P15-xxx and P14-xxx are valid). All project plans beginning with a P-number lower than these will be invalid and you cannot order animals or begin a new experiment. If your project plan has expired, we recommend that you submit a new project plan immediately if the experiments are to continue into the new year.

All project plans must be submitted for approval by AEM’s veterinarians via e-mail: Questions and comments regarding this should be sent to the veterinarians by e-mail:  and not to the animal keepers in the respective animal sections or units.

Templates for the project plans can be found in the list of our forms and requisitions. Please note that there 3 different types of project plans.
