Accelerating scientific discovery

AlphaFold has been called one of the biggest breakthroughs in biology and AI, generating new insights and understanding of fundamental processes related to health and disease, with biotechnology, medicine, agriculture, food science, and bioengineering applications.


To accelerate the impact of this development (scientific, medical, and economic) in Flanders, VSC started an AlphaFold community. Specifically, the idea is that VSC acts as a neutral partner, bringing together specialists from different organizations (both academia and industry) so that best practices can be shared. VSC staff will also showcase lessons learned frequently.

If you’re interested in joining the community, please leave your contact details below.
