Alumni Committee: Agenda for 2023

News from the Alumni Committee

Alumni Committee Meeting in Granada (Spain)

On Thursday 16 November 2023 the Alumni Committee organised an in-person meeting during the 2023 ENCR-IACR Conference in Granada (Spain). Thanks to the help of local organisers the event was streamed live via Zoom and a good number of Alumni had the opportunity to participate. The event aimed to strengthen the connections among the members, allowing them to meet and to share experiences in an informal setting. At the same time the Cabinet took the opportunity to update on past activities and to present and discuss future plans (a summary can be found here).

Webinar: Tips for effective communication

On Thursday 4 May 2023 at 11:30 AM (CEST) the first Webinar organised by the Alumni Committee: Mojca Birk and Nika Bric from Cancer Registry of Republic of Slovenia presented “Tips for Preparing an Understandable and Visually Attractive Presentation and/or Video” (slides and useful material can be found here: slides1, slides2, references). The event was open to all interested people and a good number of participants joined via Zoom. A vivid discussion followed the main presentations.

Alumni Committee Cabinet & Members Representatives meeting in Turin (Italy)

Thanks to the support of the Fondo Elena Moroni, on Friday 11 November 2022 representatives from the Alumni Committee Cabinet and members met in-person in Turin (Italy). The event was an opportunity to discuss on what has been done and on challenges and to plan the activities for the 2023. It was really fruitful with many great ideas and proposals to be put in place in the next months. In addition the participants also contributed to the Enrico Anglesio Prize Award Ceremony with a very nice sketch (have a look here).

Appointment of the Cabinet

For the initial round of activity (2021-2022) of the EAP Alumni Committee, an election would have been premature; indeed during this period of pandemic the Alumni have less than usual opportunities to meet and get acquainted each other. Therefore the Fondo Elena Moroni decided to go on with a direct appointment for the first cycle of activities, and identified some enthusiastic alumni to serve in the Cabinet with similar roles and responsibilities (for this starting year there will be no differences between Prefecti and Ancillus/a).

They are:

Yuri Ito
(Japan, 2010 Winner)
Daniel Jurado
(Colombia, 2016 Winner)
Robin Schaffar
(Switzerland, 2014 Winner)
Diana Withrow
(United States*, 2020 Winner)
(presently UK)

assisted by

Lidia Sacchetto (2016 Winner; Fondo Elena Moroni Vice-President) as Liaison Officer with the Fondo Elena Moroni Board of Directors

At the beginning of 2024 a formal election will be called, according to the AC Term of Reference (reproduced at the bottom of this page). One of the members appointed today will step down (voluntarily or drawn by lot) and the position of Prefectus/a Elect will be on ballot. The three others will respectively fill the positions of Past Prefectus/a (the elder), Ancillus/a (the younger) and incumbent Prefectus/a (the third of them). The election mechanism will thus be normalized for the years to come.

Congratulations and good look to the newly appointed Cabinet !

Alumni Committee: Term of Reference


The Enrico Anglesio Prize Alumni Committee (hereinafter referred to as “EAP Alumni Committee” or simply “Committee”) has been established in July 2021 to develop a dynamic network of relationships between winners, participants and friends of the Enrico Anglesio Prize.


Connect, engage, succeed, celebrate.


At the highest level, the Committee aims to connect young cancer researchers all over the word to share knowledge, experiences, to follow young careers development and to celebrate successes. Specifically, the Committee has the following objectives:

Ad hoc Working Groups shall be implemented in order to promote the aims of the Committee. These Working Groups may represent varied interests and affiliations.


Membership of the EAP Alumni Committee is voluntary, inclusive and free of charge with automatic joining on application for the contest. Members can withdraw their enrollment at any time by writing an email to Upon invitation by the Alumni Committee, individual young researchers from fields different than cancer can also be invited to join and to contribute to the scientific interchange. Furthermore, the EAP Alumni Committee can invite and appoint Honorary Members.

Honorary Members are eminent researchers in epidemiological and oncology fields and/or any distinguished person who contributed to cancer control and to the Enrico Anglesio Prize and/or the Alumni Committee activities and duties. They will contribute as advisers and mentors

    1. The EAP Alumni Committee is overseen by a Prefectus (the incumbent) assisted by the Prefect Elect and the Past Prefect. They are elected among the members that have contested the Prize in one of its editions between 2006 and present.
      The Executive Board of the Fondo Elena Moroni will appoint one of its members to act as Liaison Officer between the Fondo itself and the Alumni Committee.
      The Prefects and the Liaison Officer are collectively called the Cabinet.
    2. The Prefects should jointly coordinate the activities of the Committee, fostering proposals from other members and taking care of the organization of the meetings. They will interact with the Fondo’s Liaison Officer. If made necessary by the development of the activities, the Prefects can appoint an aide, called Ancillus /Ancilla, selected among the youngest members. The Ancillus/a takes care of secretary activities, such as but not limited to correspondence with the members, logistics and organization of meetings.
    3. The Prefects shall serve a term of four (4) years: one (1) year in the role of Prefect Elect, two (2) years as Incumbent Prefect; one (1) year as Past Prefect. The Ancillus/a shall serve a term of three (3) years; members in both roles shall be eligible for additional terms, with a maximum of eight (8) years, regardless of office held.
    4. The Election of the Prefect could be held during one of the regular meeting of the Committee or a specific meeting can be scheduled for this purpose. In any case elections should be announced at least two months in advance to guarantee the largest participation of members and to encourage candidacies. A member can self-nominate himself. If nobody will express voluntary willingness to be a candidate within one month from the election, the Prefects should act to find eligible members. A simple majority of those voting will be required for election.
    5. The first election round is expected in the Spring 2022. For the time being, three Alumni will be appointed by the Fondo Elena Moroni as Prefects with equivalent role and duties to take care of Alumni Committee activities in strict collaboration with the Liason Officier and the FEM Board of Directors.
    6. The Prefects and their Assistant will receive no remuneration for acting as such but may be reimbursed for reasonable and actual expenses properly incurred and disbursements properly made in connection with the performance of their duties, if duly approved by the Fondo Elena Moroni Liaison Officer. In addition the Committee will receive an initial budget as detailed in Article 6.

The FEM will provide the Alumni Committee with the following facilities:

In addition, an initial budget up to one thousand Euro (1000€) will be granted by the FEM upon the presentation of detailed proposals in line with the mission and vision of the Committee. Proposals will be evaluated by the Liaison Officer and formally approved by the FEM Treasurer. Those funds should support the Committee most relevant initiatives during the starting years.

The activities of the Alumni Committee and its achievements will be presented at the FEM website page. This page can be autonomously developed, enriched, updated and become a kind of “talent window”. The Alumni Committee is encouraged to consider to create and feed profiles on social media.


The EAP alumni committee should meet regularly and at least three times a year by initiative of the Prefects. Each member is expected to attend at least two (2) meetings per annum. Additional meetings may be convened if deemed necessary. Meetings will be held primarily online, with a schedule allowing the broadest participation of members (taking care of different time zones and national holidays); the Enrico Anglesio Prize yearly contest could be the occasion for organizing an “in person” meeting. The minutes of the meetings are drafted by the Ancillus/a and are approved by the Cabinet.


The Terms of Reference shall be reviewed periodically. As far as possible, the changes to the TOR will take the form of additive amendments, without altering the above eight articles.

Solution of matters of governance that could arise in the life of the Committee will be inspired by the consultation of Robert’s Rules of Order, Twelfth Edition, 2020.
