Research on Marine Litter Pollution Problems under the Perspective of International Law Hasselt University
Marine Renewable Energy Research Infrastructure Ghent University
The objective of MARINERG-i is to become the leading internationally distributed infrastructure in the Marine Renewable Energy (MRE) sector. Its integrated nature and co-ordinated approach will accelerate the research development and deployment of offshore wind, wave, tidal and combined energy technologies and help maintain Europe as a global leader in this industry. In addition MARINERG-i will strengthen European, scientific and engineering ...
Analyzing Sustainable Marine Tourism Development on Small Islands: A Social-Ecological System Approach KU Leuven
Many alternative approaches can be used to achieve sustainable development in tourism planning. One approach deals with handling conflicting interests. On the one hand, seen from an environmental perspective, tourism development can lead to a degradation of ecosystems. On the other, tourism development can also provide financial support for the protection of the marine environment and endangered species and the livelihoods of local ...
Development and implementation of a pan-European Marine Biodiversity Observatory System Flanders Marine Institute
ScheldeMonitor: knowledge and information system for research and monitoring on the Scheldt Estuary Flanders Marine Institute
Request for research equipment: Automatisation equipment for a Metrohm 797 VA Computrace Voltammetry System and Shimadzu L-CPH TOC (Total Organic Carbon) analyser with high salt-sample comustion tube kit Ghent University
The above mentioned research equipment will allow our research group to determine concentrations of trace elements, total carbon, inorganic and organic carbon in salt water. This is of major importance to expand our research on the bioavailability and toxicity of metals, for which our group is internationally renowned in the freshwater field, to marine and estuarine waters.

Unlocking marine genetic resources: streamlining the legal, policy and governance aspects as well as the innovation management and entrepreneurship of the marine biodiscovery pipeline KU Leuven
Marine organisms have the capacity to produce a variety of biologically potent natural products, including antimicrobial and anticancer compounds. With much of the biodiversity in the ocean still unknown and rapid progress being made in the field of marine exploration technology, there is significant potential for the discovery of novel biological resources with applications in medicine. Rates of marine resource exploitation are therefore ...
Fatty acid pathways at the basis of marine food webs: a baseline for sustainable use of marine food resources Ghent University
In order to obtain more sustainable aquaculture practices taking into account global change, solid knowledge on the transfer efficiency of biomass and energy from primary producers to mesoconsumers is crucial. For that, this research project will study the biosynthesis and bioconversion of fatty acids by primary consumers at the basis of marine food webs under various conditions.
