VLIZ is moving!

Added on 2022-08-24
After more than 20 years, the Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ) and its national and international partners are leaving their offices in the Ostend fish market. All employees are currently emptying desks, sorting materials and documents, and packing belongings. At the beginning of September, a specialized company moves no less than 684(!) boxes. Due to the move, in the week of 5 September VLIZ and its library will not be accessible. Our employees work from home and you can reach them by e-mail or phone. From 12 September you can find us in the brand new InnovOcean Campus at Jacobsenstraat number 1, a little further on the Ostend Oosteroever. In addition, VLIZ is launching its brand new logo and corporate style.

Are you curious about our new workplace?

You can visit the InnovOcean Campus on the VLIZ members' day on Friday 23 September 2022. On that day, VLIZ organizes an exclusive tour of the brand new office spaces, including a visit to the spacious VLIZ library. VLIZ employees will guide you through the building and inform you about the fascinating work they perform. Enjoy the panoramic view from the top floor. We finish with a drink. We offer this evening free of charge to our VLIZ members. Not yet a VLIZ member, but still interested in this activity? Non-members can participate by joining as a VLIZ member (take a membership) or by paying a small contribution of €10 per person.

As icing on the cake, VLIZ also has a new look. The 22-year-old logo with the blue rectangle makes way for a fresher and more contemporary VLIZ-logo.
