The Conflict in Ukraine
Echoing the sentiments of Maastricht University, the MACIMIDE Board is deeply concerned by the conflict in Ukraine and the resulting humanitarian crises. UM has created a webpage that includes information on the assistance available to staff and students, on the ways in which others can help and on information regarding the conflict. The help that can be given ranges from practical assistance to financial contributions among others. The website also highlights information on some up coming events.

The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASoS) at Maastricht University has also launched a crowdfunding initiative to support fellows from the Ukraine to spend 6 months at FASoS to conduct and present research and collaborate with other researchers. The fellowships are established to provide Ukrainian academics currently under threat due to the Russian invasion an academic home during the war and allow them and their families to be in safety and space to continue their work. By means of this crowdfunding FASoS aims to fund 3 fellowships. To find more information here.
