Dear project partners, dear members and friends of ZAE Bayern,

The recent COVID-19 outbreak is a great challenge for all of us. ZAE Bayern of course assumes its share of responsibility and fully implements all official regulations for the protection of its employees as well as the general public. This results in inevitable restrictions in collaboration nd daily interaction. Nevertheless, we are keeping up operations at all our locations. The work on our projects continues just as our research does. Activities in our laboratories and at our test facilities will also continue under special protective measures.

We will remain available to you during our usual business hours. Since many of our employees are currently working from home, the safest way to reach us is via e-mail. If you should, however, find yourself unable to contact a member of our staff as usual, please contact the respective location's central telephone number:
Würzburg: +49 931 70564-0
Garching: +49 89 329442-0
Nürnberg: +49 911 56854912-0
