Dear NVIC friends,
As we are working towards a soft reopening of our institute and library, we have decided to open on Mondays and Wednesdays from 9 am to 3 pm, for a limited number of people, by personal appointment, from the 9th of September on.
Important update: the Dutch courses have been cancelled for the upcoming round of September-December 2020, in line with Leiden University regulations. There will not be an online replacement course. We will reassess the situation again for the next round, in January 2021.
In accordance with the present travel advice issued by Leiden University and KU Leuven concerning student mobility abroad, it is highly unlikely that the ‘Egyptology in the Field’ programme will be able to take place as normal in Egypt during the 2020-2021 academic year
Dear friends of the institute,
In the following statement we would like to inform you of a ransomware incident at the Netherlands-Flemish Institute in Cairo (NVIC) in which your personal information might have been involved. The University of Leiden administrates this institute.
Related to the transition to working from home as a result of the corona crisis, the investigation into this incident has been delayed. This statement is issued later than under normal circumstances would have been the case, for which we ask your understanding.
A message from our director
I’m Laurence Peelen and I am the new intern at the NVIC. I just finished my BA Islam Studies at the Radboud University Nijmegen and I wanted to gain some more experience in the MENA region at the start of my Master’s program.
For the second time in a row the NVIC Library is organizing a book fair for a good cause! The proceeds of this edition will go to Qalb Kabeer NGO, an organisation that is running a literacy and arts activities program for children living on Dahab Island.
NVIC would like to invite you to Tilly Mulder's second exhibition. This time around a new series of paintings, names 'Mindscapes', will be on show.
