A message from the Executive Board

The measures to halt the spread of the coronavirus are fortunately being relaxed further. However, there are still restrictions in place that have an effect on our work, our teaching and our research.

This means we are still working and studying this summer largely remotely. At the same time, a lot of effort is being put into broadening the possibilities for face-to-face teaching from the start of the new academic year on 31 August. The introduction days in August can also take place in Leiden and The Hague.

The commitment, creativity, flexibility and solidarity shown by everyone so far have been truly impressive. Behind the scenes, too, a lot of work has gone into finding new solutions and making the necessary modifications so that both teaching and research could continue as far as possible. We are very proud of all that has been achieved together in the past few months!

We continue to count on your support and commitment, and hope to be able to meet up again soon in person and, most importantly, in good health. Keep up the good work and – hopefully – see you all soon!
