The award ceremony is held every year on 8 November - the anniversary of the death of the oncologist and researcher Umberto Veronesi - during the Research Day, which was also established by the Lombardy Region to enhance the potential and impact of innovation and scientific research in the area.

Student participation

The Research Day also hosts the winners of the “Lombardia è Ricerca for students” Award, which is assigned to the most innovative projects and proposals created by teams consisting of at least two high school students and proposed by their respective schools: 45 thousand euros is there for the taking, divided between three awards.
