Re: Students Laboratory Activities
In order to prevent further spread of the coronavirus disease, the ban on laboratory activities that had been announced until April 12, is being extended until May 6.
However, master’s program students, expected to graduate from KIT in September 2020, and doctoral program students are allowed to conduct experiments and other laboratory activities, provided that they avoid the “3Cs” – Confined spaces, Crowded places and Close contact. You are requested to provide students with guidance for their completion and writing of thesis, as necessary.
Other laboratory activities, such as seminars and research workshops, are to be conducted online using Moodle.
As previously communicated, this does not hinder or prevent the minimum number of the necessary activities such as maintenance of cultured cells, experimental animals and laboratory equipment.
