As an institute driven by societal challenges and with a strong sense of community, we feel a responsibility to help contain and mitigate the spread of COVID19, based on government guidelines, and to ensure a safe working environment for our students, partners, staff and visitors.

Our guiding principle is continuation of all on-going activities. Where possible, we'll swap meetings, workshops and events for tele and video conferencing.

Staff and partners
Due to the re-inforcement of the dutch national COVID19 measures all employees and partners will again be fully working from home. If activities are not possible from our home offices, or circumstances ask for a different approach, primary users of our building (for now AMS staff, EIT Climate-KIC) can request to work from our building. This request will be evaluated by the COVID19 core team.

Master MADE
At this moment, the measures as announced will have no direct impact on the way we’ve organized MSc MADE Education. Education as part of the MADE program will remain blended – which means that it will be a combination of online and offline education.

Facemasks will become mandatory, including in higher education.

Policy when using the building
When using our building fits within the above-mentioned restrictions, we ask all users of the building to first answer the five questions of this checklist. Next to this all visits should be pre-registered. Either via the meeting room tool (students), or via the registration form has been shared with direct users of our building.

Although face masks are not yet obligatory, we will implement using them starting October 15. This means wearing a facemask upon entering, when moving between spaces and when leaving the building. Once you are sitting at a desk/in a workspace or meeting/lecture room, you may remove your facemask.

Upon arrival students will check-in using the QR-code on the first floor, other users of the building check-in via the registration desk on the second floor. We ask all users of the building to follow AMS Institute's hygiene guidelines and to follow indications and signage in the building.
