Spearheading HIP’s Global Network in Europe
To compliment the Human Immunome Project’s US-based operations, we have established Stichting Europe, a separate legal entity, based in Amsterdam, that draws on Europe’s impressive track record in the biomedical sciences to advance our shared mission to decode and model the human immune system.
The Stichting’s (foundation’s) focus is on outreach, advocacy, fundraising, and creating partnerships and consortia to shape and strengthen Europe’s contribution to the global research program by:
- Establishing a network of leading European centers for human immunology, and connecting them to the mission and activities of the Human Immunome Project.
- Advocating for scientific prioritization of the decoding of the immunome.
- Working together with government institutions, academia, industry, and non-state actors – building champions and powerful alliances.
- Mobilizing financial support from the public, private, and philanthropic sectors.
