Science on Demand's staff stands ready to support students and programs in any emergency. We work closely with the home university to respond quickly, with a cool head, and ready to problem-solve any situation. Because we are located centrally in Europe, we can respond to an emergency very quickly anywhere in Europe, and we also have the capacity tp assist in China, India, Nepal and other sites in Asia, as well as many sites in Africa.
Types of emergencies might include:
Science on Demand is well versed in safety and security issues facing students, programs, and knowledge and understanding of legal issues, policies and procedures in place at U.S.-based universities.
Most emergencies are covered by Bo Løkkegaard, and we have trained a team of agents to respond to an emergency situation if Bo is not available. Contact and planning a response takes place through Bo. All of these consultants have significant international living, studying and work experience in multiple countires, as well as experience advising and supporting students.
