Head of Service a.i.:
To promote health research and to make science accessible to all
We are helping all departments to reinforce Sciensano’s status as a scientific reference in the field of health. To achieve this, we use 3 key levers:
- searching for new externally funded projects
- building an optimal framework for project management and
- promoting Sciensano’s expertise to the general public.

We cover 5 different fields of action within one single service:
- Scientific coordination
We provide our researchers with a methodological support in their quest for funding and in the preparation of their application files, in order to increase their chances of success.
- External communication
We translate scientific information into generally understandable messages (via our website, press releases, activity reports, etc.), so that all partners can use them following our motto “Healthy all life long”
We translate various documents and ensure the coordination of all translations in a multilingual work environment (French, Dutch, English and German).
- Project management support
We develop simple and effective processes for managing the institute’s projects. These processes help us to objectively monitor our activities, so that our resources can be used to the best advantage .
We ensure that our scientists have access to the resources they need to conduct their activities. We also archive the Institute’s documents in accordance with the legal requirements.
