  • The workshop will be held at the Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
  • Getting to Rotterdam . Consider the environment and travel by train: London (5 hours €59 one way), Paris (3,5 hours €35 one way) and Berlin (7 hours, €39 one way) can all be reached by changing trains just once.
  • Getting to Rotterdam by train. Use ns.nl or the NS app for information about Dutch trains. Train tickets can be bought online via www.ns.nl/en, these need to be printed. Tickets can also be bought at the train station from a machine. From Schiphol airport there is a intercity direct (26 minutes, for which you have to buy a surcharge ticket) and a normal intercity train (51 minutes). Keep your ticket: you need it to leave the station in Rotterdam.
  • Getting to the university. The fastest way is to travel by metro: from Rotterdam Central station take the metro in direction of Spijkenisse/Slinge (southbound). Change at station Beurs on metro in direction of Capelle a/d IJssel, Ommoord or Nesselande (eastbound). Get off at stop Kralingse Zoom, from where its a ten minute walk. There will be detours due to construction work for all tram lines. Use 9292.nl or the 9292 app for up to date information and planning your trip. Based on current information, travelling from Rotterdam central station can be done by taking tram 21 or tram 24 direction De Esch, stop Erasmus University.
  • Tickets are available at the vending machines (bankcard, credit card or cash) at the railway or metro stations or from the conductor at the tram and bus (cash only). See the site of the RET for products and fares. With all tickets you must check-in and check-out at the sensor gates at the stations (underground) or in the vehicle (tram and bus). When you travel by metro be sure to keep your ticket handy: it will open the security gate to get out of the metro system.
