Inspire-U 2020 cancelled
Dear InspireU summer camp participants and parents,

In this message, we would like to inform you about the developments and procedures related to the ongoing spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), and InspireU summer camp. As you might or might not be aware, the Dutch national government has recently issued a series of safety measures to counter the ongoing spread of the Coronavirus in the Netherlands. These measures have a direct impact on the preparation of InspireU summer camp. 

In light of these recent events, it pains us to tell you that the University of Twente has decided to cancel InspireU summer camp 2020. 

We are working hard to make sure that the admission fee you paid is returned to you at once. At this point, no action for this is required from your side. If however, you are left with questions, please feel free to email us.

We are saddened by this turn of events, and hope for your understanding. 

On a positive note, we are fully committed to continue InspireU summer camp in the summer of 2021. If you are interested in being kept up to date about this new edition, feel free to sign up for our interestlist, which can be found at the bottom of the this webpage. Additionally, if you are interested in one or multiple studies at the University of Twente, check out the online open days

Again, in the case of any questions, don't hesitate to reach out. 

All the best and take care,

The InspireU summer camp team
