Become a friend of Dennie Lockefeer's

To commemorate the premature death of Dennie Lockefeer at the age of 42, the University Fund, together with Van Moer Logistics and several other partners, established the Dennie Lockefeer Chair. Lockefeer was, and still is, held in high regard within the port community, and especially in the world of inland navigation, for his insights and expertise. 

The Dennie Lockefeer Chair focuses on three pillars:

  • Research: PhD on the 'Future Vision for Inland Navigation'
  • Education: an annual award ceremony for the best thesis on inland navigation and a bi-annual fee for the Antwerp Inland Navigation School
  • Service provision: a series of lectures on inland navigation

Both companies and private individuals can contribute to this chair. Anyone who contributes to this chair is considered a 'Friend of the Dennie Lockefeer Chair'.
