The Awards Committee encourages and receives nominations and/or applications for the following awards and selects the winners: The Mike Price Gold Medal Award and jointly, The Pezcoller Foundation – EACR Cancer Researcher Award.
Where the award is for Poster Prizes at the EACR Congress, the Awards Committee will select judges from beyond the Committee.
The Committee will keep published award criteria under review and refer recommendations for substantive changes to the EACR Board for agreement.
The Committee will take opportunities when presented to nominate European cancer researchers for international awards.
The EACR organises a popular programme of high quality scientific meetings, called the EACR Conference Series.
The Conference Series Committee plans which focussed meetings the EACR should organise, including the location, duration and scientific topics to be covered. They make their decisions with the following aims in mind: the highest scientific quality, interesting and relevant topics, and an enjoyable experience for participants with many opportunities for networking.
The EACR grants Meeting Sponsorship to cancer research conferences organised by EACR members.
The Committee decides on the level of EACR sponsorship, if any, to be committed following requests received. Decisions are made by the committee in the context of the annual budget and in line with the published criteria.
The EACR awards Travel Fellowships to enable early-career cancer researchers to gain new skills through a short-term visit to a lab or research group in another country.
The Committee reviews and assesses all Travel Fellowship applications based on five criteria: the suitability of the applicant, the quality of the host lab, the feasibility of the trip, the benefit for the home lab, and the overall relevance of the project.
Remit of the Committee:
The National Societies Committee develops relationships between the EACR and the national societies to mutual benefit, by identifying areas for potential collaboration and joint working and by identifying ways in which the EACR can support the work of the societies in their own countries.
