1. Corona measures

Corona measures NSCR

On this page we inform employees of the NSCR about the applicable Corona measures. We have been following the guidelines of the RIVM and the advice of our cabinet since March 2020. This page is regularly updated.

Work 50% from home, 50% at the office

The Corona measures will be further relaxed in the Netherlands. What is particularly important for the NSCR is that the advice will be: work 50% from home, and 50% at the office. We therefore maintain our policy that everyone can sign up for a desk at the office, giving us all the opportunity to be present at the NSCR at least 50% of the time.

Signing up for a desk via OKKU

You have to register for a desk/room via nscr.okku.io. 

Working at the SAL

Do you want to work in the SAL? Then please register via Aad/Thomas.

What to do in case of a Covid-19 infection while you were at the NSCR?

If you have tested positive, do not only to report this to the people you have been in contact with at the NSCR, but also to send an email to Angeniet. She will inform #iedereen that there is a colleague with Covid-19 (completely anonymous), and also mention when this colleague was last present at the NSCR. Those who were present on that day can take action – for example, work from home for a few days. In this way we can prevent further infections as much as possible and better protect colleagues in risk groups.

Read this advice for working from home and setting up a home workplace and the NWO health advice for working from home.


If you travel to a country that is yellow or green at departure but changes to orange during your vacation, you will have to go into quarantine after your return. In this case we advise you to return to the Netherlands as soon as the code orange has been announced and to go into quarantine at home. If part of the quarantine period falls outside your vacation, you can work from home. If working from home is not possible, you do not need to take leave for these quarantine days.
If you choose to remain at your vacation destination when it turns orange and you are required to undergo quarantine upon your return, this may affect your leave balance. If you are unable to work from home during the quarantine period, you will need to take leave for this period. Please contact the secretariat and your program leader in such cases.

Business travel

Business travel is possible on a limited basis upon Beate’s approval. If you plan to take a trip for work, please consult with your program leader first.
