VIB is a life sciences research institute in Flanders, Belgium. More than 1650 scientists from over 70 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 connect 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 scientists 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

We look forward to welcoming you at a VIB Conference in the future!
