Update 13-03-2020 

Dear VESTING Members,

Due to the current developments concerning the corona outbreak, we would like to inform you about the consequences of this situation regarding the VESTING.

At Thursday the 12th of March, the national government and the Board of the University announced additional measures to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus. One of these measures is that all study rooms in the University Library (City and Zernike), Central Medical Library (CMB) and at Faculties will be closed from Friday 13 March until at least Friday 10 April, but the faculty buildings will stay open. Besides that, the advice of the government is to avoid large gatherings and limit social contact. The VESTING Board advises following the advice of the government and the University.

Even though the faculty buildings will stay open, there will be no access to the Interim (including the VESTING Room and the Red Rooms) for members until at least the 10th of April.

Our International Programme, which was planned to be from the 10th of April until the 19th of April, is canceled. The participants of the trip will receive back their participation fee of €598. More information for the participants of the trip was sent to them in an email on Friday the 13th of March.

There are no VESTING Activities planned from Friday 13 March until Friday 10 April. The upcoming events taking place after the 10th of April 2020 will continue for the time being. However, we will reassess the events in due time, while keeping an eye on the news. 

Once we have more information about the developments, we will inform you as soon as possible.
