WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The yearly Pfizer Oncology Award is worth
25.000€ and is intended to support, recognise and encourage one innovative project in Belgium or Luxemburg that improves the quality and/or availability of patient care in oncology.
The Pfizer Oncology Award is open to any project related to the clinical, surgical and medical or technical aspects of patient care in oncology, but also to different ways of collaboration and/or organisation between various health care providers or between levels of care during the course of the disease.
WHO IS IT FOR?
The Pfizer Oncology Award is inviting health care professionals who are linked to a hospital, a network of hospitals, a university, a certified medical centre or a registered scientific society in Belgium or Luxemburg to submit a project which meets the required criteria (for all details please go to the Rules page).
The project must be developed for improving the quality and/or availability of oncology patient care in Belgium or Luxemburg.
The project may not already be in the implementation phase, but should be in a conceptual or design phase and should start within the year following the distribution of the award.
A set of rules including pre-defined selection criteria has been developed by an independent Scientific Committee who will select the winning project.
