The VIB Science & Technology Unit supports the research community with institutional initiatives that contribute to a stimulating environment where top science can flourish.  Examples of such initiatives include a suite of policy instruments on accessing, derisking, and disseminating cutting-edge research technologies (i.e., the Tech Watch Program and the institutional Core Facilities). To maintain the highest standards in research, the team sets standards for peer-review evaluation of research. The team also monitors and benchmarks VIB’s research to measure the impact of its science output.
