Science Day 2022: Expedition Simon Stevin

Are you interested in marine research or would you like to board a research vessel? On the occasion of Science Day –  Sunday, 27th November 2022 – you can visit the research vessel Simon Stevin. The vessel will dock at 'Het Eilandje' in Antwerp to celebrate its 10th anniversary. The visiting moment on Sunday is the final stop on a scientific expedition between Ostend and Antwerp. For a whole week, marine scientists will take samples and collect data to help address some of our planet's key challenges (climate change, plastic pollution and biodiversity loss). Board the research vessel, meet the scientists and get to know their research.
