The Belgian Society for Virology is a non-profit organization, originally founded on IUAP phase VII BELVIR.


Since then, the Society has provided a forum for scientists active in all aspects of Virology.


The stated aim of the Society is to promote and stimulate the exchange of information and collaboration among individual scientists as well as among national and international associations of Virology. Every year, BELVIR organises a Virology symposium that aims to bring together all Belgian virologists and provide a state-of-the-art overview of virology-related research in Belgium and abroad.
