It is also the perfect time for new members to join VLIZ and learn more about how the institute works and about VLIZ philanthropy 'The Sea as a Good Cause'. All welcome on Friday 23 June!

Scoop: Visit the new building of the Marine Station Ostend

The VLIZ offers its members the unique opportunity to visit the expansion of the Marine Station Ostend for the first time. On Friday 23 June 2023, we welcome you to the Slipwaykaai.
