The University of Amsterdam condemns the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Our thoughts go out to everyone who has been affected by this terrible war and we wish to provide assistance wherever we can. We are in close contact with students and staff from the region who are working and studying here. It has been decided to freeze all ongoing collaborations with Russian (academic) institutions, and new agreements will not be entered into.
