PhD Candidate, Maastricht University in Maastricht

Do you feel at home in Maastricht?

PRESENTED ON JUN 19, 2018
IN MAASTRICHT @ VOL 36

Why do highly-skilled individuals come to the Maastricht region? Why do they want to stay? Or why do they plan to leave again? And how can we make the Euregio Meuse-Rhine more attractive for them? 

These are some of the questions that Julia Reinold tackles in her PhD research at Maastricht University. She also is a true child of this region herself: Julia grew up in the German part of the Euroregion, studied at Maastricht University and is now working there as a researcher.

Martijn Kagenaar is on a relentless mission. He hates the Calimero complex in the Maastricht region, so much that he and his colleagues have decided to eliminate it.

Travelling through Europe

BY MARC MAHFOUD
@ VOL 32 ON FEB 06, 2017

As an artist, Marc Mahfoud enjoys the European freedom of expression and movement. In his case, this meant realising his dream of leaving his money home and starting to travel through Europe with a guitar only, crossing borders and visiting three countries in one day. He experienced it as a unique privilege.

However the rising lack of tolerance and understanding is endangering this freedom. When he was robbed twice during his travels everything he stood for got tested.

He would like to encourage us to better appreciate and preserve the freedom that we have in Europe, and to actively participate in the dialogue of open borders and tolerance.

He challenges us to dare to discover! When you travel by foot you get in touch with a wide spectrum of people, you learn to appreciate your life and to respect others.

Improvisation: If you could call Europe, what would you say?

BY PECHAKUCHA NIGHT MAASTRICHT
@ VOL 32 ON FEB 06, 2017

In this improvisation on random slides, four volunteers from the audience got five slides each and skillfully improvised on the question: "If you could call Europe, what would you say?"

As none of them had seen the slides in advance, the sense of challenge and the high level of surprise greatly entertained the audience. 

A big thank you to Cristian Tala Sánchez, Osiris Hoepel, Cathy Kwanten and Fjære van der Stok for their participation!

How I became a refugee

BY HAROON REZAIE
@ VOL 33 ON MAY 22, 2017

We have all seen the images of migrants arriving in Europe, but have you met one? Haroon Rezaie and his family took the risk and journeyed to the Netherlands. Now he wants to share his experience in order to give people a vision about the life of refugees and why they became a refugee. This could be either that they came by favour or they were compelled by the living circumstances to leave everything behind and start life again in a new place. This is the ultimate story to inspire perseverance and determination in any situation.

Migration – from perceptions to reality

BY MICHELE VESPE
@ SCIENCE FOR EUROPE, SCIENCE FOR ME, POWERED BY PECHAKUCHA ON MAY 17, 2019

Migration is a divisive topic and often marks a line of division in political debates. Migration is also a grey area, often dominated by the lack of information on the one hand and by false information on the other. In this talk, JRC data scientist Michele Vespe sheds light on the data and numbers that can help us understand migration and help build bridges between  science and the public debate surrounding migration and migration policies.
