News - Secretary of State Sleurs Increases Budget for RV Belgica

Secretary of State for Science Policy, Elke Sleurs, has increased the maintenance budget for the oceanographic research vessel, RV Belgica. She has provided € 1,019,000 on top of the existing, recurrent annual increase (€ 550,000) in the RV Belgica's operating budget. This is a clear signal of just how important this research vessel is!

We can now continue to operate safely for the next 3 to 4 years, but the vessel's replacement is still a matter of urgency given that it will take more than 3 years to arrange for a new ship once the decision has been made!

Information on Elke Sleurs' decision.
