Blue Sky Research

Excellence in research highly depends on new insights and knowledge at the forefront of science. To achieve this, we engage in collaborations on high-risk, blue sky research related to the ocean which otherwise would be difficult to get started.

This theme includes explorative research for discovering new signals or trends, e.g. by non-targeted data mining and applying big data technology on newly available datasets or opportunistic measurements with certain research infrastructure.

For more detailed information on our Blue Sky Research we refer to the VLIZ Research Strategy.
