Dear colleagues,

We regret to inform you that due to the covid situation in (the world) Switzerland, we have no choice but to cancel our End of the year celebrations scheduled Dec. 16, 2021.

Secret santa present exchange remains, so please if you have not received the name of the person you should offer a gift, check your spams or contact Laurian at genopode-it@unil.ch. Participants are invited to drop their gift to Julie’s office, room 2026.3. A silver arrow will guide them to the collecting box.

An online celebration will be organised with the very welcome assistance of the social committee and a Xmas-pack will be distributed to everyone just like last year. We will keep you updated regards to the date and time.

Sincerely,

The CIG Direction.

If you are interested in the culture and languages of different countries, or you simply want to enjoy an afterwork beer and snacks 🍻, then we are pleased to invite you to the 2nd Monday Movie Night 🎬 #German

It will take place on the 6th of December at 18:00 in the 3rd floor meeting room (3027).

RAF) from 1967 to 1977. The movie won and was nominated for numerous national and international awards, amongst them the Oscar and Golden Globe Award as the best Foreign Language Film of the Year 2009!! 😱
No panic, we will have English subtitles! ✌
