Dear Friends and Colleagues,
as you probably noticed in the last weeks we still had many difficulties with our new website. It was many times down, not accessible or the appearance of the site looked very strange.
I apologise for the inconvenience caused by all the technical problems, but it was really tough to migrate from the test domain on that the new site was created to our official domain – www.nice-network.eu.
Without a help from a friend and IT specialist Simas Juodelis from Lithuania I probably haven’t managed it.
Now I am happy to announce that the main technical problems have been fixed and I will be able to migrate step by step all the content from our old website and from other sources as well as to add some new functions.
Don’t forget to visit this new virtual home of NICE regularly and you will find from day to day more useful information.
With warmest wishes from Heidelberg
New NICE Website
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
we are happy to announce that today the new NICE website has been successfully launched.
Our site address (domain) remains the same: www.nice-network.eu as in the past. We would be happy if you could advertise the NICE Website through the homepages of your degree programmes and share the link in other suitable ways.
We have now a new and more user-friendly design. It is customized for different devices – PCs, tablets and smartphones. The development of the site is now also in our hands – that means that we are no longer dependent on external service providers and can react more quickly and make necessary changes.
For your work with the new NICE Website, we wish you a good start!
If you notice any problem or find an information that is no longer up to date, please contact us! For this purpose please use the comment function or our contact form.
With warmest regards,
on behalf of the Network Dissemination Team and the Network Coordinators
