The health and safety of our High Tech Campus residents and visitors is our main priority. We do everything in our power to make the Campus safely accessible in our new 1.5 meter society. We take the advice of the RIVM very seriously and that's why this blog is continuously being updated. Please respect your own company policy when you're allowed to return to work

What's new in this blog?

  • From June 26, the requirement to wear a face mask will no longer apply in most situations. It will continue to apply only in situations where staying 1.5 apart is impossible. For the Campus this means that it is no longer mandatory to wear a face mask in our buildings (unless your employer prescribes otherwise) and in The Strip (a.o. Campus Wellness Center, restaurants, Conference Center, etc).
  • The recommendation to work from home unless this is not possible will change. From 26 June employees who currently work from home can, in consultation with their employer, work up to half of their hours at the office.

What measures will be taken at the High Tech Campus when you return to work? 

As High Tech Campus Eindhoven we are doing everything in our power to make it comfortable for our residents to return to work. Below a list of all the measures that are taken at the Campus. We also call on everyone to take their own responsibility to adhere to the basis rules of the RIVM. 

Companies of the following buildings will provide their own measures: Philips, Signify, TomTom, TMC, Brunel, NXP, Shimano, NorthC, TWICE and ASML. Please respect your own company policy. 

Parking garages
If you travel to the Campus by car, you will immediately notice a change in the parking garages. You will find the general rules of the RIVM and the High Tech Campus guidelines in the new 1.5 meter society. Please follow the signing on the floor, and keep right as much as possible. 

A new corona policy will be introduced in the parking garages:
  • Between 6:30 AM and 2 PM, the stairs may only be used down, and the elevator for anyone who wants to go up.
  • Between 2 PM and 8:30 PM, the stairs may only be used up, and the elevator down only.
If you cannot walk stairs, you can of course take the elevator. We always make an exception for this.

At the bicycle parking spaces in the garages there will also be an information leaflet.

The Strip (outside)
Keep right when walking on The Strip, but also on for example the stairs and elevator. When the population of the Campus increases and keeping right isn't enough anymore, we will also indicate a walking route how to get from A to B. In case of an emergency, please follow the signs of the escape route, and not the COVID-19 signing. Please take your own responsibility when moving around the Campus.

Conference Center High Tech Campus has drawn up a protocol for meetings in the new 1.5 meter society. 

Capacity
All our rooms have a maximum capacity based on the number of square meters. The required 1.5 meter will be guaranteed. Read more about it here.

Parking
Our parking facilities offer enough space for participants to keep 1.5 meters distance from each other. Parking garage P0 is the closest to the Conference Center. Follow the route as indicated from the parking garage to our location.

Arrival & departure
In order to properly regulate our guests during meetings and to ensure safety, the Conference Center contacts the organization of a meeting one week before hand, to discuss details: arrival times, program, breaks, number of participants, general rules and hygienic measures. There will be clear signing to make sure you know where you can enter or leave the building. There will be also signing on the floor to help you find your way.

We have a special meeting & events hostess walking around, to remind participants to keep 1.5 meters distance from each other and to explain where the meeting or event will take place.

Toilets
The maximum amount of people that can be present in the toilet will be indicated by clear signing. We ensure that the breaks of your events are favorable, so that there are no unnecessary queues at the toilets. We do ask for some flexibility from the organizations regarding the program. Twice a day there will be an extra cleaning round of the toilet groups. 

General areas 
We will arrange our rooms with a fixed arrangement of chairs and tables in such a way that the 1.5 meters are guaranteed. Clear signing will indicate how you can walk to the rooms. Where possible we prefer one-way traffic, so that participants do not have to pass each other. Hygience and rules of conduct are visible through clear signs in the building. 

Safety in rooms
In every room, near every chair, you will find a postcard to emphasize the general and hygienic rules. At small meetings, participants can make their own arrangement about how to leave the Conference Center. If you organize an event in the auditorium, our meeting & events hostess will help you. 

In every meeting room you will find hygienic products to wash your hands. And if you prefer you can also clean the attributes you touch, such as the table, clicker of beamer. And we also ask people to bring their coats and bags into the room.

Breaks and lunch
Break and lunch times should take place at different times than other meetings, as much as possible. This will be discussed in advance with the organizing parties. The coffee and tea buffet will have the hygienic resources so that participants can wipe the device clean before each use. If you have questions, don't hesitate to contact us via conferencecenter@hightechcampus.com or via +31 40 230 5700.
