Calling All Full Members! Applications are now Open for the Wolfram Nolte Memorial Award for Colorectal Cancer Projects

September 8, 2022

Digestive Cancers Europe would like to make a call to all Full Members with projects in colorectal cancer (CRC) to apply for our annual Wolfram Nolte Memorial Award by 15 October 2022. The prize of €5.000 awaits the winning project!

The award was established in 2019 in the name of the late Wolfram Nolte, a dear friend to many at DiCE and a metastatic CRC (mCRC) patient who was very active for many years in raising awareness, improving patient education and sharing his experience.

What criteria do projects need to fulfil?

The project needs to aim at solving an unmet need for CRC Patients/Carers. Only Full Member Organisations are eligible to apply. The following criteria will be graded by our international jury comprising of patients and patient advocates:

  • Importance of the unmet need that is to be solved
  • Innovativeness of the project
  • Feasibility of measuring key performance indicators
  • Achievability of the project
  • Involvement of other stakeholders
  • Sustainability of the project

Project outlines should be sent to Ghislaine, our Administrative Manager before 15 October 2022. The winner will be announced in our monthly newsletter.
