How do power relations cause gender inequality and exclusion, and how can we change it? What impact does structural racism have on societies?

Four Utrecht scientists are able to research these questions thanks to the Horizon Europe programme.
Dogs with osteoarthritis benefit from a new treatment: an injection that delivers a painkiller with a long-term effect, safely and effectively. It's possible that the treatment can also help humans in the future. Marianna Tryfonidou, Professor at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, collaborated with academic partners and companies.
On Monday 27 March 2023, Utrecht University will celebrate its 387th Dies Natalis, or birthday. The theme of the Dies celebration is The climate crisis - between reflection and action. This is not a festive theme, but we think it is crucial to have a debate about it. After all, the climate is changing - even faster than science predicted - and the consequences are devastating.
Picture this: it is the year 2060. Climate change has changed the earth. We now live with water, and no longer fight it. Sustainability is at the heart of politics. Ecocide is a crime. Speakers at the Pathways to Sustainability Conference 2023 on 4 April reflect on these and many more topics within the theme 'See the Future'. The language of communication is English.
