Welcome to ERA – Academy of European Law






Staying Safe and Healthy

at Face-to-Face Events at ERA

Before the event

Attendees are advised to book travel and accommodation with flexible cancellation conditions or to take out travel cancellation insurance. ERA will inform registered participants one month before the event whether it will take place in face-to-face format. ERA nevertheless reserves the right according to its General Terms and Conditions to cancel an event until two weeks beforehand.

For attendees at events organised in the framework of EU-funded projects for whom travel and/or accommodation costs may be reimbursed, ERA will not reimburse the costs of travel and/or accommodation booked earlier than one month before the event. The cost of travel cancellation insurance can be reimbursed.

If ERA is obliged by the public health situation to cancel a face-to-face event, it will in principle be replaced by an online event on the same dates. Participants will be entitled to switch to the online version or to cancel their participation at no cost.

At the event

ERA applies the Corona Control Ordinance (Corona-Bekämpfungsverordnung – CoBeLVO) of the State of Rhineland-Palatinate for events taking place in Trier and the same or stricter local standards at other locations.

The key measures applicable at the current date (3 April 2022) are the following:

  • Attendees must disinfect their hands when entering the ERA premises. Suitable disinfection dispensers are available.
  • Everyone (including participants/organisers/employees as well as vaccinated and recovered persons) is strongly advised to wear a medical facemask or a mask of the standards KN95/N95 or FFP2 or a comparable standard in the ERA buildings.
  • Air purification devices are placed in all conference and workshop rooms, which are also regularly ventilated.
  • All spaces within the ERA buildings are cleaned regularly.
The above list of measures will be reviewed regularly and updated in the light of changes to the Corona Control Ordinance or applicable local regulations.
