The Eurekaweek will definitely go on!
A few weeks ago the Dutch government decided to cancel all events until September 2020 to prevent the spread of Covid-19. As a result, the Eurekaweek will take place in a different form than originally planned. Nevertheless, the Eurekaweek will take place! Online because it is possible and offline when it is possible.
The introduction week will take place during the original data: the 17th till the 20th of August. In addition, on the 16th of August there is a special day just for international students.
The so called 'Blended Eurekaweek 2020' will consist of two parts; 3 offline days in Rotterdam followed by 1 "online" day.
During the offline days (August 17th till August 19th) we organize activities spread over more than 100 locations throughout Rotterdam. For three days you and your group of +/- 15 students from your field of study will discover Rotterdam. Activities are provided at the locations by the various study-, students- and sports associations. Naturally, all activities are in line with the applicable government regulations.
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. On the platform you will find information about the city of Rotterdam, Erasmus University and your new student life. In addition, this is the ideal opportunity to gather information about the study-, sports- and student associations that you want to know more about or have missed during the physical days.
