Speaker: Andrew Tasker PhD, Director of Business Affairs, Champalimaud Foundation
Title: The Antonio Champalimaud Vision Award
Brief Overview: In September 2016 the 10th edition of the 1 million euro António Champalimaud Vision Award was celebrated in Lisbon. Over the past decade this prize has recognised outstanding work on 4 continents and put 10 million euros into the fight against blindness. As we now begin the search for the 2017 Champalimaud Award winner, it is time for a review of the aims of the prize, as well as an invitation to organisations active in blindness prevention and clinical care in the field to consider applying. All organisations and efforts, both big and small, are eligible as long as they can demonstrate high impact. Andrew will be discussing this and all other issues related to the Champalimaud Vision Award.
