As you have all noticed, the developments surrounding the Covid-19 virus are going very fast. As MAEUR, we are actively following all the regulations and messages brought out by the RIVM and the Erasmus University. As both corporate- and governmental policies have tightened and our utmost priority is the safety of our members, we will take appropriate measures for our upcoming events that comply with the code of conduct communicated by the RIVM and the EUR.
Due to the international restrictions, we have decided to cancel our Study Trip to Budapest. Since the Hungarian government has declared an order of a national state of emergency, we have come to the conclusion that we cannot ensure the safety of our participants.
Thereafter, the current circumstances have also led us to decide to discontinue the organization of the Speeddating Event. If you have applied to participate in this event, you will receive an email later today regarding the follow-up process. The DSMA Natural Language Processing workshop may be postponed to a later moment this year.
Furthermore, the current restrictions published by the RIVM have also given us no other option but to cancel our MAEUR Lustrum Gala on the 27th of March. We are working very hard to move the gala to another date later in the year, but we cannot offer concrete information as of right now. We will keep you updated on this. If you have bought a ticket for the gala, you will receive a message later today regarding the follow-up process.
In the meantime, we will continue to monitor developments on the virus and the policies communicated by the RIVM and EUR. Where necessary we will, of course, inform you and all the involved parties again if there are changes that lead to other actions. The most recent updates will be shared on this webpage, so please keep that in mind.

Thank you in advance and we trust to have informed you sufficiently. In case you have any questions, feel free to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
