Information due to Coronavirus situation

Impact on the work at ISFH

Many of our employees are currently working from home. However, they can still be reached as usual by email and, if available, by work mobile phone. At the institute site itself, the work in the laboratories continues as far as possible under observance of the distance rules.

Direct visits should be avoided as far as possible at present. However, if you wish to visit ISFH, all visitors are required to submit a declaration stating that they have not knowingly had any contact with a person who has been tested positive for coronavirus within the last 14 days.

Right now, acting together responsibly is as important as acting together for the success of the energy transition!

Stay healthy!
