Sport - Mar 22

Shortly before our interview, Jordan Habets returned from Llorett de Mar in Spain. Not to party wildly there, as you would normally expect from a 21-year-old man, but to train heavily. Jordan has been a promising cyclist for years, working very hard alongside his education to pursue a career in cycling. He passed his bachelor's degree in Medicine without any problems and is now doing the master's degree in Human Movement Sciences. And that too is going well for him alongside all the training and races.

Women are in the minority in closed treatment facilities (TBS) and other forms of forensic care worldwide. In the Netherlands, only 10% of patients admitted to forensic care are women, but their number is slowly increasing. Do the existing treatments and measurement instruments, developed predominantly for male patients, work equally well in women? No, says Professor Vivienne de Vogel. When it comes to women, the nature of the crimes involved, the motives and the treatment needs are different. What does this mean for forensic care?

Crimes involving high-value unique goods, such as luxury items and works of art, have evolved in one surprising way: where the lure for criminals once lay in stealing or forging such objects, it now lies in transforming them into financialized assets, for instance to obscure transactions, to launder money, or to hide wealth and evade sanctions.

Things are bustling around the kitchen table of Burak Can, associate professor of Data Analytics and Digitalisation. A mix of Turkish, English and Dutch can be heard. "I speak Turkish with my children, my wife Ingrid speaks Dutch with them, and we speak English with each other." On the menu is one of the children's favourite dishes: a Turkish lentil stew. At least, that's what they think.

The 'Afstammingscentrum' (research centre of filiation) offers assistance for everyone in Belgium who has questions about their own filiation and kinship - when the legal kinship does not match the genetic kinship. The centre develops and gathers expertise, raises awareness and formulates policy recommendations on these issues. In practice, the centre often has to deal with ethical questions about adoption. Experts, such as Sophie Withaeckx, researcher at the Centre for Gender and Diversity at Maastricht University, help with answering these questions.

Our world is in transition as the post-war rules-based order becomes increasingly under threat. Authoritarian powers, large commercial digital platforms and populists disregard the value of allies working together. Europe is strong when multilateralism is strong, when countries collaborate to pursue common goals. In a new European research project, scientists will be working to revitalize multilateralism through technology policy innovation. The REMIT project started on March 1, 2023 and is funded by the EU's Horizon Europe research and innovation programme.

  Many people with chronic inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis continue to experience persistent abdominal pain. They feel that they are not getting enough help for their pain, even when their inflammations are well managed. Because there is still little known about this form of chronic pain, gastroenterologist Dr. Zlatan Mujagic of the Maastricht University Medical Center+ will conduct research to better understand it. For this, he has received the prestigious Clinical Fellowship Research Grant from ZonMw.

The topic of cross-border cooperation plays only a modest role in the party manifestos for the upcoming provincial elections. Surprisingly, this is the case even in those provinces bordering a neighbouring country. This is one of the findings of a thematic analysis  of 56 party manifestos from seven of the twelve Dutch provinces that share a border with another country. The analysis was conducted by researchers from ITEM, Maastricht University's transnational expertise centre. The finding is particularly noteworthy given the issues with cross-border cooperation brought to light by the COVID pandemic.
