Dear colleagues,

The current situation is extraordinary and aggravating. We are all doing our best to isolate ourselves, to keep social distance and generally to follow the instructions of the authorities. Still, we are closely connected, and you are doing an exceptional job to continue your work under very difficult conditions. On behalf of the department management team, I would like to thank you all for your amazing efforts to do your job to teach and supervise students from a distance and to prepare them for the exams that are scheduled to take place according to the plan within a couple of months. I trust that you will continue keeping a high moral, because the current state will not end tomorrow. So far, the university close-down is for two weeks, but this period is most likely to be extended further. All departmental events until the end of April have been cancelled or postponed unless you are otherwise informed.

As you have already been informed, the department has set up an ECON corona web portal, where we gather information from the university, the BSS faculty management, the BSS study response group, and the department. This is to avoid spamming you with emails. We suggest that you check the page often as it will be updated regularly. Emails will thus be more sparse in the future. 

The ECON corona web site is also the channel where part time lecturers (DVIP/eksterne lektorer) can follow the information flow.

Again, your strong commitment is very much appreciated. Thank you. 


I wish you and your families all the best. I know that particularly the combination of being a family with small children and working from home can be a challenge. Remember to keep social distance, but also to take a walk in the forest or along the beach because the spring is now coming after all.

Niels Haldrup
