Here is your new Sidonius website: all your trusted content, but technically future-proof with an interactive newsblog, an events calendar, and an RSS feed that keeps you informed of the latest news. The layout adapts itself to your screen, whether pc, tablet, or smartphone. The website has been entirely checked and overhauled, inside and outside. It should be ready for another decade now.
Your reactions are much appreciated. Send Joop van Waarden an email.
The familiar site will remain on air for as long as desirable, but it will not be updated anymore.
