North Sea Award

Every year VLIZ awards a prize at the VLIZ Marine Science Day to promote innovative fundamental or applied research. This research has to focus on the study of the structure or processes of the North Sea, with special attention to the shallow coastal areas and estuaries of the Southern Bight and the English Channel.

The VLIZ North Sea Award is presented annually to a researcher or research group active and residing in a country by the North Sea.

The prize amounts to 1 000 EUR and is indivisible. The prize aims to reward recent and original scientific work that contributes to the innovative fundamental and applied research on the structure, operation and sustainable management of the ecosystem of the North Sea, with special attention to the shallow coastal areas and estuaries of the Southern Bight and the English Channel. The contribution’s level is post-graduate or post-doctoral, and refers to a maximum of three years' research since obtaining the doctorate.

The VLIZ North Sea Award 2020 was awarded to Camille Gaulier (Vrije Universiteit Brussel & Université de Lille) for her work entitled "Trace metals in estuarine and coastal waters: dynamics, speciation and bioavailability under various environmental conditions".

The award was presented on Wednesday 3 March 2021 on the occasion of the annual VLIZ Marine Science Day #VMSD21(online event, informatie op www.vliz.be/vmsd).
