Research seminar in Ostend with experts from UGent, KUL, Flanders Hydraulics and 2 international facilities on experimental research in wave tanks

You are kindly invited to the presentation and discussion on present available expertise in Flanders regarding large scale
experimental test infrastructure such as wave tanks, and the importance of such test infrastructure in European and
international research programs in support of government and industry. The seminar will be in English.
This seminar is free, but we request to register in advance.
