Pilots launched for more physical education at universities

In order to provide more physical education in the course of 2021, eight universities are exploring the possibilities of using corona quick tests and other ways of facilitating more physical education. The Ministry of Education, Culture and Science has given the green light for eight pilots spread throughout the country. Pieter Duisenberg, Chairman of Association of Universities in the Netherlands : "Universities are working hard to offer students the prospect of more physical education. Students and lecturers miss the meetings that are so important for our education. These pilots can help."
