Ostend Science Park is a high-tech knowledge hub. A science park entirely dedicated to marine and maritime business and science. It is the first of its kind in Belgium and is the perfect breeding ground to boost your blue business and support the Blue Economy.
Business meets blue science
Ostend Science Park is founded by Ghent University, Port Oostende and POM (West-Flanders Development Agency). Our ambition is to make researchers, entrepreneurs and their R&D smarter, by connecting them in an unique ecosystem. The interaction between knowledge-driven companies and specialists from knowledge institutions deepens their insights and helps them to find solutions together. It makes our Blue Economies and researchers stronger.
OSP is the operating base of many internationally renowned and highly regarded marine and maritime academics from Ghent University, united in Marine@Ugent. We focus on long-term relationships between them and specialized, high-quality and sustainable partners who want to learn from each other.
