An award for the Best Outreach Work on Colorectal Cancer in 2017, organised by the Olga Torres Private Foundation, was also granted at this same event. The jury, made up of representatives from the Night of Science event organisers, decided to grant the award to the project for the development of information items on the prevention of colorectal cancer by ICO/IDIBELL’s “Mejor Sin Cáncer” (Better Without Cancer) platform, co-led by doctors Laura Costas, the platform’s epidemiologist, and Gemma Binefa, head of the ICO Colorectal Cancer Screening Program.

The award at this year’s event was for a total of €9.000.

The project is expected to be developed over 22 months and will be launched on June 1, 2017.
