Resources via charity and foundations

13 December 2019

Did you know: 
  • that the King Baudouin Foundation regularly organizes multistakeholder dialogues to set priorities for different purposes? This is a very strong tool toinvolve people and to identify unmet needs.
  • that all parties involved - patients, scientists and companies – are striving for evidence-based medicine? Because this is the only way we canreally defeat diseases.
  • that investing from the start in basic research often leads to tangible results? It may take a while, though, and funding is scarce to build the bridge from such research to validated assets in which industry can invest. The Fournier-Majoie Foundation has invested to help build such a bridge from a research project of Nico Callewaert (VIB-UGent Center for Medical Bio technol¬ogy), that has resulted in a diagnostic kit for liver diseases. 
  • • that mentioning your funders when communicating about your research can have a lot of effect? By doing so you express your gratitude and show the community who helped in making your research possible. It can be very simple, for instance by tagging your funders in a social media post.
