Programme 2020

Programme of the Eurekaweek 2020

The current COVID-19 situation demands creativity from the Eurekaweek board. However, they are confident that they have organised another unforgettable Eurekaweek. “It has definitely been a challenge this year, but every student at EUR deserves a Eurekaweek. So, the Eurekaweek will go on,” according to Sander Doude van Troostwijk, president of the Eurekaweek Board.  With a new structure and online and offline activities, small supervised groups will get to know the city and EUR. Each participant follows a programme which includes one day in Rotterdam. During this day, there are activities on campus, a picnic and they will be introduced to the city through a game. This will be spread over four days, so a quarter of the participants will be in Rotterdam on each day. The other three days of the Eurekaweek are online. The online activities will include a daily talk show, podcasts and group activities in which participants can get to know each other.

  • The online program starts on Sunday, August 16. At around 6:00 PM (UTC +2) your guides will create a group chat and video call where you can meet your group mates and your guides. The great opening of the Eurekaweek will take place at 8 p.m. with the first broadcast of @Eureka Live.

  • From Monday the 17th until Wednesday the 20th of August, the Eurekaweek Board will organize a programme consisting of various physical activities. These ‘physical’ days all have a different goal: get to know the university, discover the city and explore your student life. After the Eurekaweek, you’re ready to start your studies.

    • During this part you will get to know Campus Woudestein. You will also meet your study association and become acquainted with all the facilities that campus Woudestein has to offer.

    • This part is all about getting to know your fellow students and testing your knowledge of Rotterdam! Therefore you will play the Eurekaweek City Game: "Identity Crisis". This game challenges your knowledge about Rotterdam and mainly requires teamwork!

    • We organize a picnic at a striking location in Rotterdam. You get everything you need to make this picnic a fun get-together. During the picnic, the participants have the opportunity to ask their guide about studying in Rotterdam.

  • Even though the day program ends, this does not mean the end of the Eurekaweek! To take your student life in Rotterdam to a higher level, the Eurekaweek board is organizing a talk show. On four evenings you will have the opportunity to participate in an interactive talk show where charming guests will talk about a number of aspects of student life.

  • Let's Get Digital! Apart from your physical day, there is a platform full of activities. This platform was built especially for Eurekaweek, a platform full of games, quizzes, workshops and live streams. During these activities you will get to know your fellow students and also the various student associations or partners. However, this does not mean that Eurekaweek is over! These digital days run parallel to the physical program. On the fourth and last day of Eurekaweek, an online pubquiz awaits, after which the winners of the game will be announced and the aftermovie will follow.

Crucial information!

  • Note: in order to spread participants as much as possible and to keep in line with the measures given by the RIVM, we will work with different shifts. Therefore, the exact program will differ per group per day. Your personal program will be communicated to you shortly before the start of the Eurekaweek. For more information about Covid-19, click on the button below.

  • For those who have booked a sleeping accommodation on campus: due to the renewed program of the Eurekaweek 2020 (as a result of new COVID-19 measures from the Dutch government) and the Eurekaweek consisting of only 1 physical day, the sleeping accommodation on the campus will be canceled . You will of course receive a full refund! You will receive this refund no later than 1 month after the end of the Eurekaweek.

  • During the physical day we provide a picnic. However, lunch and dinner are not included. You will have some time between shifts to arrange meals, but it is best to bring your own.

  • The programme for master students will be the same as the one for bachelor students. However, we do take into account that we assign master groups to activities that are relevant to them (for example a workshop from a master association).
