Visit to VLIZ and DEME

Posted by Admin
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 visited the Vlaams Instituut voor de Zee (VLIZ or Flanders Marine Institute) in Ostend where we were introduced to the research and activities that take place at the institute and learned about DEME’s activities in the North Sea. The program looked 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 Right before entering the Simon Stevin research vessle   The BIWA president Ilse Smets determines direction!
