Construction of the InnovOcean Campus in Ostend officially started

Added on 2020-07-02
On 30 June Flemish Minister of Economy, Innovation and Agriculture Hilde Crevits laid the symbolic foundation stone of the new InnovOcean Campus. By the end of 2022, this state-of-the-art and energy efficient building will be the new accommodation for the Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ) and its (inter)national partners, where we will co-house with the Research Institute for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (ILVO). The brand new building in Ostend should boost marine research. The construction of the campus involves an investment of 20 million euros.
