What is happening at the Flemish sea side?

The holiday season is quite over, so the answer to this question has nothing to do with tourism but everything with water research and technology. During this BIWA sea event we will visit the Vlaams Instituut voor de Zee (VLIZ or Flanders Marine Institute) in Ostend where we will be introduced to the research and activities that take place at the institute but we will also learn about DEME’s activities in the North Sea.

The program looks as follows:

  • 14u30 - arrival and welcome
  • 15u - DEME presents de Blauwe Cluster and the innovatie project “Coastbusters” (ecosystem based coastal defense)
  • 16u - VLIZ presents its activities
  • 17u - Visit to the Simon Stevin research boat of VLIZ
  • 18u - Closing network reception

Registration is free for members; non-members pay a small fee. Registration happens online through the link below. We hope to see you all there!
