The supporting members institutions which now have a seat in the VPH Institute Board of Directors (BoD) are those organizations who participated to the call for supporting members at the end of 2020 and agreed to sustain the Institute finance paying a €9000 quota.
What are these Institutions and who represents them?
The Board of Directors is composed by 11 Institutions that excel worldwide for their research quality, and are actively involved in VPH, most of them being partners on VPH funded research projects.
Some of the Institutions were already members of the Board of Directors from last year and decided to keep their guidance role for the upcoming year too, some others recently joined the Institute and are ready to fresh start their collaboration bringing in their expertise and motivation.
