VLIZ Marine Science Day 2019

The VLIZ Marine Science Day has become an established event for all marine and coastal scientists in Flanders/Belgium and its neighbouring regions.

Dating back to its predecessor the 'IZWO Contact Days', this event has evolved since 2000 into an annual interdisciplinary and informative forum.

More than 300 – mostly young – marine and coastal experts from all disciplines come to this event to share knowledge from lectures, posters, demonstrations and interactive sessions. Not to be missed!


Similar to previous years, LifeWatch Belgium was present with an elaborate information and demonstration booth. Demonstrations were given about:

  • Phytoplankton semi-automatic identification using image classification techniques
  • Mooring scientific instruments in challenging North Sea conditions – troubled water
  • Water quality in the Belgian part of the North Sea: Exploring ocean’s health through online applications
  • The World Register of Marine Species (WoRMS)
