VLIZ puts focus on marine robotics

Added on 2019-09-17
With a brand new 'Marine Robotics Centre' the Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ) expresses its ambition to become an international knowledge hub for marine robotics. The centre is embedded in VLIZ which, as a national and international point of contact in the field of marine research, is the perfect institute to manage and operate this specialized infrastructure.

Carl Decaluwé (Chairman of VLIZ and governor of West Flanders), Johan Hanssens (Secretary General of the Department of Economy, Science and Innovation) and Jan Mees (General Director of VLIZ) officially launch the 'Marine Robotics Centre' to grow into an international knowledge hub for marine robotics (VLIZ).

For the full text, please see the press release (in Dutch).

See the webpages of the Marine Robotics Centre for more detailed information on the three robots: the Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) ‘Zonnebloem’, the Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) ‘Barabas’, and the Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) ‘Adhemar’.
