With the contributions and gifts that VLIZ receives within the frame of its philanthropy activities, we want to fund marine research ideas that can contribute to solving a hypothesis-based marine research question.
Topics of interest are (amongst others) pollution, ocean and human health, marine biodiversity, climate change, ocean related disasters and marine explorations.
The grant can be used to assist PhD students in their lab and/or field work, data acquisition and analysis, to sponsor visits to other institutes to use their specialized facilities, for the acquisition of equipment or software needed for a certain analysis and so on. The fund cannot be used to reimburse the use of existing lab infrastructure within your university, for personnel costs, to pay for travel costs which amount to more than 50% of the grant or to attend conferences. 

More information and application form can be found on the VLIZ website:
