Oceanology has grown together with the joint progresses in Applied Sciences (Hydrography, marine Hydrodynamics, coastal and offshore Engineering) and Fundamental Sciences (marine Chemistry, Biology and Geosciences). Integrating these complementary disciplines through pluridisciplinary field works on one hand, and mathematical modelling in another hand, Oceanology is in essence a multidisciplinary research domain.

This scientific environment has naturally led to the creation of a Interfaculty Research Centre within the Liège University with following partners:


  • Laboratory of Oceanology (J.M. Bouquegneau - K. Das - S. Gobert - M. Grégoire - J.H. Hecq - G. Lepoint)

  • GeoHydrodynamics and Environmental Research (GHER) (J.M. Beckers - S. Djenidi - J. Nihoul - M. Rixen - F. Ronday)

  • Chemical Oceanography Unit (A. Borges - M. Frankignoulle †)

  • Laboratory of Atmospheric and Planetary Physics (L. François)

  • Research Unit in Geomatics (Y. Cornet - J.P. Donnay)

  • Laboratory of Physical and Quaternary Geography (M. Erpicum - A. Ozer)

  • Laboratory of Economical Geography (B. Mérenne-Schoumaker)

  • Research Unit on Clays & Paleoclimates (N. Fagel)

  • Laboratory of Petrology and Geochemistry (J. Vander Auwera)

  • Laboratory of Mass Spectrometry (E. De Pauw)

  • Centre for Protein Engineering (A. Wilmotte)

  • Laboratory of Animal Physiology (A. Péqueux)

  • Laboratory of Paleobotany and Micropaleontology (M. Vanguestaine)

  • Laboratory of Algology, Mycology and Experimental Systematics (V. Demoulin)

  • Laboratory "Systematics and animal Diversity" (P. Dauby)


  • Laboratory of Hydrogeology (A. Dassargues - A. Monjoie)

  • Laboratory of General Mathematics (E. Delhez)
