Support and grants

The VHPB secretariat benefits from being seated at the Centre for the Evaluation of Vaccination (CEV) of the University of Antwerpen, where it has the infrastructure and administrative services of the University at its disposal. 

The VHPB is supported by unrestricted grants from the companies (e.g. GSK, Merck/MSD, Gilead, Sanofi Pasteur), several universities in Europe and other (international) institutions. The VHPB accepts such unrestricted grants from companies to support their activities, but maintains all editorial control over the content. For the VHPB and its advisors strict operational and scientific independence is essential.

VHPB advisers and invited experts do not receive honorary or any other form of renumberation, they only get their travel and subsistence reimbursed according to the University Rules.
