Professor Koen Schruers was set on studying schizophrenia after graduation - until he was asked to participate in PhD research on panic. He was fascinated. One in four people will suffer a panic attack at least once in their lives, and one in thirty will develop a panic disorder. The phenomenon can be studied with experiments: just the kind of research method that suits Koen. In his book Paniek en hoe het aan te pakken (Panic and how to tackle it) he offers some practical tips. One of the most important pieces of advice? Schruers: "Breathing into a paper bag does not work."

Men and women are affected very differently by childhood trauma, according to a new international study led by Maastricht University (UM). Women with psychological problems in later life are more likely to have experienced emotional trauma and sexual abuse as children, while men's mental-health problems are more likely to result from emotional and physical neglect during childhood. The researchers presented these striking findings yesterday during the European Congress of Psychiatry in Paris.

SBE alumnus Niels Geominy did not follow the typical career-path as you would expect from someone graduating from a Business School. When most of his fellow SBE alumni were signing contracts to work for multi-nationals, Niels decided to launch his own start-up: Fiks.

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.

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.

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.
