About Partnership Day

The Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT) at the University of Luxembourg is a research institution specialised in ICT. Our researchers conduct long-term research and demand driven collaborative projects with local and international partners, as well as the public sector. 

Our Partnership Programme is the heart of our activity at SnT. The work we achieve in collaboration with our partner organisations helps to establish Luxembourg as a centre of excellence and innovation within Europe in the field of secure, reliable and trustworthy ICT systems and services. 

Held annually, our Partnership Day is a chance for us to thank our partners, showcase our research outcomes, as well as discuss key trends and issues in ICT.  

 

We look forward to welcoming you on Thursday 18 November at the European Convention Center for an afternoon of discussion and celebration of our achievements within the framework of the Partnership Programme.

CovidCheck

Partnership Day will be a CovidCheck event. As a result, it will be necessary for you to present either:

  • a vaccination certificate
  • a certified negative PCR or antigen test (no self-tests accepted)
  • or a recovery certificate

As per the Luxembourg Government’s CovidCheck rules, a negative PCR test certificate is valid for 72 hours, and a rapid antigen test is valid for 48 hours. A recovery certificate is valid between 11 and 180 days after the date of a positive PCR test result. A vaccination certificate is valid 14 days after the second dose, or 14 days after the first dose if you have recovered from COVID-19 within the last six months, or if your vaccination requires just one dose. Accepted vaccines are: BioNTech/Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca (Vaxzevria) or Johnson&Johnson (Janssen).

Please Note: Due to new regulations in place from 1 November, self-tests will not be accepted under CovidCheck rules, therefore you must provide a certificate from a vaccination, PCR test or rapid antigen test.
