Coronavirus: EQE2020 abgesagt

Wir haben gerade ein Anschreiben zugespielt bekommen, das das Prüfungssekretariat offensichtlich an alle Teilnehmer der bevorstehenden Europäischen Eignungsprüfung 2020 verschickt hat. Aus diesem geht hervor, dass die diesjährige Eignungsprüfung abgesagt bzw. verschoben werden muss:

Dear candidate,

In response to the latest developments about the spread of the novel Coronavirus (Covid-19), the Supervisory Board of the European qualifying examination has decided in line with the EPO’s precautionary measures to cancel the EQE planned to take place 16-19 March 2020.

The Supervisory Board is currently assessing the feasibility of organising the examination at a later stage during the current year. We would kindly ask for your understanding that due to the complex logistic arrangements related to the organisation of the EQE, this assessment will require some time. The Examination Secretariat will revert back to you as soon as there is a decision taken by the Supervisory Board. Also, please understand that due to the high number of enquiries received, answering individual questions will take more time than usual.

We sincerely regret this highly unsatisfactory situation for all concerned. Further information will follow in due course, in particular related to the reimbursement of the fees.

Best regards

The Examination Secretariat

Die Absage scheint auf die derzeit beim EPA durchgeführten Präventivmaßnahmen (hier beschrieben) zurückzuführen zu sein.
