Information related to CoVid-19: Events at HQ

The number of cases in Switzerland is unfortunately stagnating at a relatively high level and the public-health situation remains a major concern. Therefore, amongst other measures, EPFL has decided that no event is permitted on its campus, until 4 June 2021.

Organisers of events at HQ have been contacted individually and informed of CECAM’s policy for 2021 Flagship events. This policy has been set in place to mitigate the impact of the pandemic on the 2021 and future Flagship programs.

All standard channels of communication with organisers and participants are available. Participants should refer firstly to organisers for information on specific events.
