The VIB Tech Watch team is dedicated to actively onboard emerging life sciences technologies at VIB in the fields of microscopy, (single cell) sequencing, proteomics, genome engineering and many more. Research is only as good as the available technology allows. Therefore, we believe that access to the next emerging technology inevitably leads to the next groundbreaking scientific discovery.

We scout, connect, set up partnerships, evaluate technologies in early access and assist widespread adoption. We collaborate intensively with the VIB research groups for these evaluations and de-risk participation in this program both financially by providing internal funding as well as lowering time-investment by providing hands-on support through the technology innovation lab.
