The Society

The Society of Virology (GfV) is a non-profit association and an academic society whose aim is to promote virology in all disciplines in German-speaking countries (Austria, Germany, Switzerland). This is to be achieved through scientific meetings, promotion of publication and scientifically driven dialogue as well as cooperation with other scientific societies. A particularly important concern of the GfV is the promotion of academic education and professional training with a focus on the support of young scientists. The GfV offers advisory services to sponsors of scientific institutions, research-promoting organisations and committees of politics and society, as far as scientific aspects of virology are concerned.
