The First INFOBIOMED Training Challenge (ITC) has been granted an award by the leading Spanish medical newspaper "Diario Médico" as one of "The best ideas of the year" under the "Professional policies" category. The award ceremony has taken place on 28th of November in the Teatre Nacional de Catalunya, in Barcelona.
Diario Médico has a wide dissemination and an important impact on the (bio)medical community in Spain; that is the reason why receiving this award means an achievement for the project and is the best motivation for organising future editions of the ITC.
The First INFOBIOMED Training Challenge is an innovative experience coordinated by the GRIB and organized by the European Network of Excellence INFOBIOMED to promote the consolidation of Biomedical Informatics (BMI).
Prof. Ferran Sanz, head of the GRIB, collected the Diario Medico award in representation of the INFOBIOMED Consortium.
