COVID-19: measures: update

We are happy to announce we will be welcoming researchers at the Lorentz Center again in August!

Update 30 July

We are looking forward to welcoming researchers again at the Lorentz Center, after a period of lock down measures to control the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

As from 1 August 2020, we hope to welcome a limited number of workshop participants at our center in Leiden. We have taken precautionary measures, so people can safely visit our venues, while keeping a distance of 1,5 meters.

If you are travelling from abroad, please keep yourself updated via the websites of Netherlands and You and Netherlands Worldwide.


Update 8 May
Following the measures of the Dutch government and considering the worldwide actions to control the spread of the Corona virus, we have cancelled our workshops until 31 July 2020. Also our staff will continue working from home.

We do our best to reschedule all cancelled workshops. This is challenging, because the list of postponed workshops is still growing and we also have to schedule newly approved workshops. We are in close contact with the scientific organizers to arrange things properly.

Also we discuss possibilities to organize workshops online. This has already been succesfull for some workshops that could not take place physically and, to still bring researchers together, were organized virtually.


Update 26 March
The Lorentz Center is closely following the developments in the coronavirus outbreak. The Dutch government has announced restrictive measures to halt the spread of the virus. One of the measures is that all events and gatherings have been banned until 1 June.

We therefore have cancelled our workshops until 1 June and our staff will continue working from home.

In case the organizers of the cancelled workshops decide to utilize the time and the commitment of the participants for virtual activities, we are supportive of these actions. Please contact your workshop coördinator to discuss the possibilities.

At this moment we cannot oversee the impact of the corona pandemic on our planning for the period after 1 June. We will keep posting updates on our website.
