The Breur Award is named after Prof. Klaas Breur one of the founding fathers of ESTRO. If he had not died prematurely in 1981 he would probably have become ESTRO's first president. Professor Breur was the head of the Radiotherapy Department of the Wilhelmina Ziekenhuis van Amsterdam (Universiteit van Amsterdam) and participated in founding the EORTC.

As a tribute to Professor Breur’s pioneering work, ESTRO created this annual “Gold Medal“ award lecture in his name. The Breur Award is the highest honour that can be conferred on an ESTRO member and is awarded in recognition of the major contribution made by the winner to European Radiotherapy.

The recipient of this prestigious award delivers a lecture at the ESTRO Annual Meeting. 
The Breur Award is published in the Abstract Book of the ESTRO Annual Meeting where it is presented.

Eligibility Criteria  
All members of ESTRO are eligible to be considered for the Breur Award.
