We not only have special attention for the individuals at the wheel of the organisation, but also for family members who may, from a greater distance, benefit equally from staying in a stable course. Both individuals and organisations can join GUBERNA.

Research and Development
GUBERNA works closely with the Research Centre for Entrepreneurship & Family Firms (RCEF, UHasselt) lead by prof. dr. Wim Voordekkers, and the Expertisecentrum Familiebedrijven VKW-Limburg lead by Koen Hendrix. Our research and expertise is unique, combining important insights and experiences from the perspective of family businesses themselves. Where appropriate, we also use these persepectives to make the political world more aware of the specific challenges facing family businesses.
Family Business Award of Excellence
Every year GUBERNA, together with EY and FBNet Belgium, in a partnership with BNP Paribas Fortis and De Tijd/l’Echo awards the Family Business Award of Excellence to a family business. By way of this initiative, we want to encourage family businesses to use ‘best practices’, to share them with each other and to recognize the yearly laureates.
