​What is BICEpS?

BICEpS’s stands for “Belgian ICES people”. The general aim of the initiative is to offer a platform to the Belgian ICES community to get to know each other, to improve collaboration and to share information, and to promote ICES to the wider scientific community in Belgium.

The BICEpS community encompasses more than 70 Belgian scientists involved in the work of ICES, contact persons in marine research institutions and universities and any Belgian scientist willing to join and contribute to the work of ICES. BICEpS activities started in 2018 with the organisation of a first annual colloquium and a brainstorming session to define future actions.

The activities are led by a Steering Committee consisting of the Belgian delegates of ICES with the support of communicators from the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences (RBINS) and the Flanders Research Institute for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (ILVO) and a secretary from RBINS. No doubt you will also hear of the work of BICEpS in the social media under the hashtag #ICESbelgium. Stay tuned!
