About the Award
One goal of the International CCN Society (ICCNS) is to to facilitate the diffusion of scientific information and promote contacts with other Scientific Societies.
As a first step along this line of action, the Journal of Cell Communication and Signaling (JCCS) has been created as the official journal of the ICCNS.
In an effort to broaden the scientific scope of the International Workshop on the CCN family of Genes, Professor Bernard Perbal, President of the ICCNS and Peter Butler, a former Editor at Springer, have agreed upon the creation of an award to be given to a scientist in recognition of his/her scientific merit and contribution to his/her field of interest.
In order to trigger interactions between scientists working in the CCN field with those working on related biological and biomedical areas it has been agreed that the recipient of the ICCNS award would be offered the possibility to present his main achievements in the frame of an International CCN workshop. Since 2019, Springer stopped sponsoring this event.
The Award presented by the ICCNS covers the full cost of meeting registration fees.
