Policy factors impacting innovation: The case of Flanders

Jo Bury, managing director VIB

Flanders anno 1994 • • • well established support for R&D good (life) science stars of worldclass

Flanders anno 1994 • • • • well established support for R&D good (life) science stars of worldclass Innogenetics – Plant Genetic Systems How can we do better?

SWOT analysis Flanders 1994 • • • • S: - strong science base (champions) W: - no structural funding - brain drain - no tech transfer O: - develop an attraction pole of excellence - build a knowledge economy T: - loose leading position

Benchmarks • • • • • • Max Planck Society MRC UK Karolinska Institutet Cold Spring Harbor Labs Salk Institute HHMI

Preliminary conclusions • • • • • • Focus on excellence PI vs Dir as DMU Combine strenghts Build critical mass Build a tech transfer pipeline Develop a biotech cluster

Business plan • • build a new institute from scratch o attract the champions ↕ reunite the champions in 1 SRC o multisite o stringent selection

Business plan (2) • • • • thematic focus: o GE: molecular mechanism of life high level of ambition: o top 10% WW continuous improvement: o selection / continuation based on excellence institution: o not another granting body

Business plan (3) • • • long term financial commitment: o significant (30-50%) o 22 M€/year o 5 years o renewable (if excellent) stringent selection of university departments: o 9/100 independent structure (SRC): o board of directors o own facilities (TTO)

Reduction to practice • • • • Minister-President: o visionary (long term view) o right combination of powers o April 1994 government of Flanders: o April 1995 foundation by notarial deed: o July 1995 operations: o January 1996

Reduction to practice (2) Partnership with universities • • • • • university campus empower univ staff with VIB staff framework agreement VIB-univ mutual added value share return on investment – Publications: 2 affiliations – IPR: joint IP (VIB in charge)

VIB today

VIB: Mission To create groundbreaking knowledge on the molecular mechanisms ruling life for the benefit of scientific progress and the benefit of society

Excellence in science + Excellence in tech transfer

VIB state of affairs • • • • • multisite institute (JV with univ) 1350 scientists – technicians (50/50) 76 research groups 8 departments management agreement (2012-2016) • 43.8 M€/year • • 5 years key performance indicators

Basic [email protected] Molecular mechanisms • • molecular medecine – normal growth and development – health vs disease  neurobiology  cancer  inflammation  cardiovascular molecular farming – normal growth and development – normal vs stress

Basic [email protected] • • • centre of excellence important biological questions stimulating environment – VIB grant – research infrastructure – disruptive technologies – dialective environment – institutional integration

Science policy Making the Difference • • • frontline (not me too) world class (international competition) relevance + quality performance = good record of high impact publications and patent applications

Results 2013

Results 2013 • • • 620 peer reviewed publications 168 breaktrough articles (68 T1%) 70 PhD’s
