Corona pandemic: precautions currently being taken by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation 

Planned events involving large groups have been cancelled or postponed. Sponsorship-recipients are called upon to inform themselves about the latest developments regarding Corona cases in Germany and Europe. For a current risk assessment by the Robert Koch Institute, visit: https://www.rki.de/EN/Home/homepage_node.html.

The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation will respond to the situation flexibly and comply with the guidelines issued by the responsible authorities. Sponsorship-recipients in Germany and future fellows should consult their contact person at the host institution or at the Foundation if they have any questions.

As a precaution, events have been called off. These include the colloquium due to take place in Cameroon on 19 March 2020, the Award Winners’ Symposium in Bamberg in March and the Network Meeting in Cologne in April.
