Flanders: home to a vibrant biotechnology research and development community

The Flemish Institute of Biotechnology (
VIB) -  a non-profit research institute in the life sciences – supports innovative research in the area of human,  industrial and plant biotechnology. The Ghent Bio-Energy Valley (GBEV) is a European initiative geared towards developing a greener, more sustainable economy and the largest cluster of bio-refineries in Europe. 

The VIB unites about 1200 scientists across 72 research groups in a single institute.  The VIB also translates innovative research into new social and industrial applications, ultimately leading to an enhanced quality of life for the society (add link).
