Foundation: 1995

Mission: Our mission is to conduct frontline biomolecular research in life sciences for the benefit of scientific progress and the benefit of society.

Vision: We want VIB to be an inspiring place for research at the interface of academia and industry, offering an appreciative and collaborative environment. We share responsibility for research, celebrate our successes together and learn from our mistakes. We encourage risk taking, make things possible and meet and collaborate with the best scientists world-wide. In doing so, and in maintaining the highest standards of research, we mentor and coach our people in their professional development. We will earn their appreciation as VIB-ambassadors throughout their career.

Evolution of the institution

The following data gives a quick reading on the scientific performance in the last years. The research ranking refers to the volume, impact and quality of the institution's research output. The innovation ranking is calculated on the number of patent applications of the institution and the citations that its research output receives from patents. Finally, the societal ranking is based on the number of pages of the institution's website and the number of backlinks and mentions from social networks.

Compared to its context

The result of the evaluation of the institution can be compared to obtain a view of the country, the region to which it belongs and the institutions of the world, placing it in their respective positions.

Ranks by Subject areas/categories

We have divided the scientific output of the institution into 19 large areas of knowledge and the following table shows only the ranks in different territorial domains achieved by the institution in each of the areas. For an institution to have a presence in an area, it is necessary that it exceed in the last year a minimum output threshold equivalent to twice the percentage that this area represents in the world. If you need scientific indicators on these areas visit Scopus and/or SciVal.
