Belgium-based life sciences research institute VIB has promoted Els Beirnaert (pictured) to head of new ventures.

Beirnaert was previously senior manager of new ventures at the institute, a position she had held for more than four years since joining in early 2013.

In that role, she was responsible for the creation of spinouts, including business analysis and market research to identify commercial opportunities, creating business plans and road shows for VC funding, corporate structure and recruitment of managers, fundraising and standard service agreements for series A and B rounds.

VIB currently counts more than 1,470 researchers from more than 60 countries who work in close partnership with five universities – Ghent University, KU Leuven, University of Antwerp, Vrije Universiteit Brussel and Hasselt University.

VIB is funded by the government of Flanders. It focuses on pharmaceutical, agricultural and industrial applications for its research.
