With the contributions and gifts VLIZ receives within the frame of its philanthropy activities, we want to fund marine research ideas that can contribute to solving a hypothesis-based marine research question.
Topics of interest are (amongst others) pollution, ocean and human health, marine biodiversity, climate change, ocean related disasters and marine explorations.
The grant can be used to assist PhD students in their lab and/or field work, data acquisition and analysis, visits to other institutes to use specialized facilities, acquisition of equipment or software needed for a certain analysis and so on. The fund cannot be used for personnel costs or to attend conferences.
More information and application form can be found on the VLIZ website:
