On-site participation in TFC21

Those that intend to reach the University facilities at the time of the conference are asked to get in contact with Renate Folie (email: event(at)unibz.it ). All the instructions will be given about how to reach the rooms where the conference will be managed. Because of the Covid situation, the rules below apply and have to be carefully read by visitors. Information about the venue and further information about the Covid situation in South Tyrol are available here.

The Decree Law no. 111 dated 6 August 2021 and the Emergency Measure of the President of the Provincial Government No. 29 of 27.08.2021 introduce new measures to prevent Covid-19 infection, making the COVID-19 green certification (Green Pass) mandatory on university campuses.

As a result, from 1 September 2021 University staff, students and external visitors must possess a Green Pass and are required to show it on the main entrance.

The following persons may receive a green pass:

–             Vaccinated persons: valid from the 15th day after the first dose and until the second dose; thereafter, valid for 270 days after the second dose.

–             Healed persons: valid for 180 days.

–             Tested persons: valid for 48 hours after having tested negative to a PCR or antigen test.

Unibz strongly discourages to travel from and in high-risk areas. In exceptional cases of proven necessity, a private insurance policy must be taken out.
