Programme 2020

Programme of the Eurekaweek 2020

Due to the COVID-19 measures taken by the Dutch government, the Eurekaweek will take place in a different form than previous editions. This year, the Eurekaweek will consist of two parts; three physical days in Rotterdam and one online day.

The first three days of the Eurekaweek (Monday the 17th of August until Wednesday the 19th of August) will take place in Rotterdam. During these three days together with your group in shifts you will visit various locations to get to know the city of Rotterdam, student life and your fellow students. On more than 100 locations many fun activities will be organised such as a silent disco, picknicks, karaoke, roller-skate disco, rowing, sailing and many more! Additionally, you will get to know the city by playing an interactive game. Soon more activities will be announced, so keep an eye on our social media channels!

The final day, Thursday the 20th of August, will completely take place online on our interactive digital platform. On this platform many different workshops, games and information sessions will be organised by various organisations. This is the ideal way to be in touch with all the many different study-, student-, and sports associations that Erasmus University has to offer. Additionally, the digital platform will offer you a convenient place to find all the information that is relevant for starting your studies at Erasmus University.
