VIB is a life sciences research institute in Flanders, Belgium. More than 1470 scientists from over 66 countries perform basic research into the molecular foundations of life. The institute offers a program of international VIB conferences in various VIB research fields. From day one VIB has supported and sponsored scientific conferences to help VIB scientists network with their colleagues. In 2014 the VIB Conference Series was launched to further expand these activities and support them with a dedicated professional team.
The aims of the conference series are:
to showcase cutting edge research and exciting technological solutions presented by leading scientist in the life sciences fields
to offer junior researchers the opportunity to present their work during poster sessions and learn from the world’s experts during the Meet the Expert sessions
to establish opportunities for collaborations between scientists during an accompanying social program including lunches, conference dinners and receptions
