Dag van de Wetenschap 2019

To celebrate Science Day 2019 on Sunday, 24th November, the Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ) offers guided tours on the Flemish research vessel Simon Stevin. In addition, VLIZ will demonstrate the variety of marine research at the Marine Station Ostend (MSO). During this edition, scientists reveal the technological progress in marine research that is no longer (science)fiction. Build your own underwater robot, compete against a computer in identifying plankton, follow a live demo of a diving deep-sea robot, attend fascinating lectures and take a look inside a real measuring buoy. We have something for everyone!

Also the LifeWatch VLIZ team will be present with information booths on:

  • Plankton research: Are you smarter than artificial intelligence?
  • Telemetry: the whereabouts of fish
  • The LifeWatch biobank
