GESIS Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences: Go to homepage


The GESIS Training Team is very concerned about the health of participants and lecturers of our courses. We are happy that we offer in-person courses again. At the moment, masks are not mandatory in our in-person courses. Since we know that some of you prefer digital courses altogether, we will continue to supplement our on-site program with digital courses.

For our on-site courses, we implement regulations that legally apply at the respective venue (Mannheim or Cologne). General information on these regulations can be found on the websites linked below. We will inform all participants of on-site classes via email about the exact regulations applying to the class they are registered for.

Corona regulations for Mannheim (in the state of Baden-Württemberg):

Corona regulations for Cologne (in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia):

Corona regulations for Germany (brief overview in English), including regional hotspots:

Corona regulations for participants from abroad:
