Affiliate Scheme

VIMC’s affiliate scheme aligns with two of our core goals:

  • to foster a diverse international community of vaccine impact modellers, inclusive of modellers in low- and middle-income countries

  • to provide training in infectious disease modelling and its application to vaccine-preventable diseases for both modellers and policymakers.


Benefits for affiliates include:

  • Opportunities to participate in VIMC webinars, including those with external speakers

  • Opportunity to submit an abstract for VIMC-wide meetings.

  • Potential opportunity to be paired with another affiliate as a ‘buddy’, and benefit from peer-to-peer learning, while developing international links.

  • Newsletter from VIMC, including an introduction to new affiliates

  • Other updates from VIMC



Affiliates should already have some link to VIMC and its work, and some experience of modelling. For example, they may have attended a VIMC short course, they may be PhD students or close collaborators of existing VIMC members, or they may have taken part in the VIMC fellowship scheme. Affiliates may be based in any country. In general, we expect affiliates to be based at a university, research institute, or global health organisation.


Applying to become an affiliate:


To apply to become a VIMC affiliate, please complete this application form. We will evaluate applications monthly on a rolling basis. The affiliate scheme will stay open throughout VIMC 2.0, so there is no application deadline. We aim to assess each application within two weeks.
