Since its establishment in 1996, VIB has become a wide spread international community of more than 1,600 scientists and support personnel currently working at VIB and over 3,000 VIB Alumni who are now employed by a variety of national and international universities, research centers, companies, governments, hospitals, etc. 

Our VIB Alumni initiatives see to it that both communities stay connected.

This award recognizes outstanding leadership and excellent scientific achievements of VIB alumni with significant societal impact. The award consists of a prize worth €5.000.
