About the Event
The 53rd European Marine Biology Symposium (EMBS) will be organised in Ostend by the Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ) and LifeWatch Belgium between September 17th and 21st, 2018.

EMBS53 aims at linking the history, the present and the future of (European) marine biology. This edition will be special, as 2018 is a celebration year in Ostend: the first marine station ever worldwide was inaugurated exactly 175 years ago, in Ostend, by professor Pierre-Joseph Van Beneden. Since then, the world of marine biology has changed dramatically - both in Belgium and Europe - especially in relation to used technologies and techniques. EMBS53 therefore focuses on the following themes (see flyer):

  • Science from a historical perspective
  • Science in a modern era
  • Citizen science
  • Science in the North Sea
