BGDO Awards

BGDO AWARD 2019

The BGDO wishes to stimulate scientific research work and communication in the field of gastrointestinal oncology, performed mainly in Belgium. For this purpose, the BGDO will grant this year an award to one or two scientific projects dealing with epidemiology, basic or translational research, clinical research, or registry in digestive oncology.

Apply for the BGDO Awards. You can find the rules here. 

The BGDO Award 2019 will be accorded to a researcher or a team of researchers (age less than 40 years) in the field of GI oncology who propose an original research project that will be conducted in an outstanding manner in Belgium and may have a significant impact on our knowledge and/or management of gastrointestinal cancers.

At least one of the researchers per team should be a member of the BGDO.

The project should be realistically achievable and completed within two years.
 
The winner(s) will be granted EUR 2500 to cover the research work.
 
All projects will be evaluated by a jury who will select two projects according to the scope of the BGDO award. The jury will be composed of the BGDO board representatives and international oncology experts.
 
Each project should be sent before 31 December 2018.

The award winner(s) will be announced during the BGDO meeting of the Belgian Week  in the presence of jury members, followed by a presentation of the subject.
