Viruskenner is a competition for high school students interested in science, and who wish to gain knowledge on (exotic) viruses. How do these spread, what is their effect in humans and animals, how do people get ill and foremost: how to cure people or prevent them from falling ill.

This year 8 schools consisting of over 500 students participate, while 8 coaches help them wherever they can! Eventually there will be several winners: one team gets awarded for the best solution design, one team for best content, one team for best video production and one quiz winner.

The project is lead by prof. Eric van Gorp. Besides his academic research he is active in developing innovative ways of sharing knowledge about infectious diseases amongst the youth such as in the awardwinning program Viruskenner.
