[March 14] Since the event was supposed to be organized as an international-wide celebration, in these special circumstances caused by epidemic, we follow the authorities orders and made the sad decision not to organize it on March 25-27, becuase we take the human life our first priority. The event is postponed.
Keep in touch and hopefully see you all soon.

March 25-27, 2020

Coronavirus policy for Óbuda University

[March 3] All events at Óbuda University will be going ahead as planned.

Óbuda University is ready and happy to organize all events, conferences, symposia, meetings, lectures, etc. as far as the authorities force us not to do so, but we are taking the virus concern very seriously.

Participants are kindly asked to wash hands regularly and respect the WHO recommendations. We also advise people to avoid physical contact during the event and adopt a no handshake policy. This will not be seen as rude in the current circumstances.

Latest risk assessment by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control can be found here

In the event that attendees are coming from, or have visited in the last month, an area subject to travel restrictions or a travel advisory issued by a European government or health authority or which is an infected area then we kindly ask that you self certify:
1) That at least 14 days have past since you left the area
2) That during that 14 day period you have shown no flu-like symptoms
If you are unable to self-certify these two points, then we ask that you to substitute another attendee or refrain from attending the event.

In the event you are coming from another area but you still feel you may present a risk to others (for instance you are currently living in an area with some community based transmission or have exhibited flu-like symptoms in the last 14 days) then we ask you to consider the safety of other attendees and their families and that you also consider refraining from attending the event.
