A record profit of 39,391 Euros generated at the IRCAD charity dinner held at Europa Park

Following the invitation of Francine Bord, President of IRCAD Friends, and thanks to the generosity of Roland Mack, Europa Park CEO, more than 300 people were present at the IRCAD’s (Research Institute Against Digestive Cancer) charity dinner which was held on Friday, November 4, 2011, at the sumptuous Teatro dell’Arte, in the presence of Professor Jacques Marescaux, President of IRCAD.
The total profit made was 39,391 Euros, and will entirely be used for cancer research.

The evening was set to the beat of Europa Park’s new show, in which dancers, acrobats, jugglers, magicians and singers took turns on stage for over 4 hours. The master chef of the event was Emile Jung, who had put together an original menu, with the collaboration of Europa Park chef Jürgen Steigerwald.

With a profit exceeding 7000 Euros, the charity dinner lottery was a tremendous success. 52 prestigious prizes were to be won, including a plane ticket to Hong Kong kindly offered by Cathay Pacific, free nights in luxurious hotels, free meals in some of the region’s finest restaurants, cruises on the Rhine offered by Croisieurope, iPads offered by the Caisse d’Epargne Alsace and by I-DATECH, suitcases offered by Lufthansa…

The evening’s profit is to be entirely given to the IRCAD’s research departments.

COVID19: IRCAD sanitary measures & health pass

Please note that the IRCAD administrative board and staff are closely monitoring the evolving COVID-19 situation, in full compliance with all applicable laws and regulations in France. The health, safety, and well-being of our participants, experts and staff are our top priority!
Despite the current context, the IRCAD stands firmly by your side to help you acquire knowledge and skills. Come and join us !

We would like to draw your attention that the « Vaccine Pass » is now mandatory in France since end of January 2022 and replaces the former « Health Pass » to access places that are open to the public, such as cinemas, museums, cafés and restaurants, hotels as well as the IRCAD Institute which welcomes participants in the framework of its courses and seminars. Thus, a PCR test without vaccination is no longer sufficient to take part in our courses.

The vaccine pass includes a proof of the following (one of the 3 items is sufficient):

  • The vaccination certificate, proving that persons have a complete vaccination (as of January 15, 2022, all persons aged 18 and over must receive a booster dose no more than 7 months after their last injection or Covid infection to receive a valid vaccination pass. As of February 15, 2022, the time limits for keeping the pass will be reduced, you will have to do your booster dose 4 months and no longer 7 months after your 2nd dose to have a complete vaccine schedule and maintain a valid vaccine pass)
  • The result of a positive RT-PCR or antigenic test attesting to the recovery of Covid, more than 11 days and less than 4 months
  • The certificate of contraindication to vaccination

Further information about the new vaccine pass can be found at :

We very much hope to be able to count on your kind understanding of those rules which have been set by the French Government and which our Institute is required to apply
