Special childcare programme at the University of Groningen
In the summer of 2010 the University of Groningen started a special childcare programme offering childcare services to participants of University conferences. In its first years the programme was financed through a subsidy from the Elsevier Foundation. In the meantime the costs are covered by the University itself. An important goal of the programme is to support families in their academic careers, and it dovetails well with other University initiatives such as the mentoring programme for female academics and the Rosalind Franklin Fellowships. The programme is organized in cooperation with the Groningen City Childcare Association (SKSG), which runs 30 day care centres for children aged 0-4, and also organizes after-school care for children aged 4-13.
Depending on the hours of childcare you will need and the number of applications that we receive, a small fee might be applicable. You will be informed about this.
Please indicate that you are interested in childcare during your registration and we will contact you with further instructions.
