The UMagazine provides insights into the most important developments and achievements in education and research at Maastricht University. Three times a year a printed version of the UMagazine appears.
In this latest edition, extra attention is paid to Europe: PhD candidate Akudo McGee is studying the contestation of EU norms, particularly in Poland. An American citizen of Nigerian descent, she views the European project from an outsider’s perspective—with fascination and, increasingly, concern. Bachelor students Lotte de Lint and Olsi Sokolli share their vision on the future of Europe and we met alumnus Jeroen Lennaers. VoteWatch Europe proclaimed him the most politically influential Dutch member of the European Parliament. And a farewell interview with Hildegard Schneider, professor of European Law. She contributed to UM becoming a real European university.
Furthermore: Plastic is more sustainable than you think and how can the power of companies like Facebook and Google be curbed. Frans Verhey, the last nerve doctor in the Netherlands, looks back on his 40 years of working with Alzheimer's patients. This time, the Soulkitchen section offers a peek in the kitchen of Anne Roefs. She has long hesitated between a career in science and as a top chef.
This and more can be found in the February issue of the UMagazine.
The next issue of the UMagazine will appear on 21 June 2022.
