Would you like to join the VPHi Board of Directors and play an active role in shaping the future of in silico medicine research? The time is now.
Once a year the VPH Institute opens the call for supporting members, who are the members that through the payment of an annual supporting quota, will have access to a seat in the Board of Directors of our organisation. Supporting members are the engine of the institute: they drive our policy, set agendas and propose specific actions to pursue the goal of our organisation: making in silico medicine a reality!
The Institute assigns a maximum of 12 supporting memberships, number that shall guarantee the effectiveness of our governance model. In case the number of received requests will be higher, the General Assembly will decide upon it through a formal vote.
The supporting fee is set at €5.000. Being the membership with the highest level of involvement, supporting members have the duty (and the benefit connected) to sustain a major part of the financial viability of the Institute.
