Join the fight against coronavirus COVID-19

The coronavirus is hitting us all particularly hard – not just here in Belgium and in our neighbouring countries, but everywhere in the world.

Every day we get an update of the bleak statistics and the death count goes up. People, cities, and even entire countries are in lockdown. This is a scenario that nobody would have wanted to write, but unfortunately, truth is stranger than fiction at the moment.

Luckily, there is hope. Scientists, hospitals and healthcare professionals worldwide are working day and night to contain the coronavirus, and they are being met with a heart-warming wave of solidarity.

UAntwerp has also redoubled its efforts to both chart and halt the spread of the virus.

Currently, there are several 'Fight Corona' projects at UAntwerp that you can support!
