Please note: the EuroQol Office team is working from home

As the COVID-19 disease is spreading in the Netherlands, the safety of our employees is our primary concern. Therefore, we are taking several measures to ensure continuous service to our customers and EuroQol members.

The EuroQol Office team will be working from home, as of March 11th. Accordingly, the physical EuroQol Office in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, will be temporarily closed. We have ensured that our employees are equipped to work from home. Our business continuity plan is in full effect but unfortunately due to several illnesses, not related to COVID-19, we are currently understaffed. Please be informed that we will do our very best to meet our regular turnaround times. However, we kindly ask for your understanding, given these unusual circumstances.

If you have an urgent question please send an email to your EuroQol Office contact or to this email address You can also call our main telephone number: +31 884400190.
