Universities pleased that physical education is fully possible again

The universities of the Netherlands are pleased that the government has indicated that, in principle, all education may once again take place on location. Pieter Duisenberg, president of the Association of Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU): 'It is very good news for the students and lecturers that we can return to the campus more or less normally again. We will examine how we can use the extra space safely and responsibly. We fully understand and will pay attention to vulnerable students and lecturers who do not feel safe now that the measures are being relaxed. As is already the case, the universities will continue to talk with them to find the best solution.'
