Students and staff of multiple universities, including the UvA, have called on the Executive Boards of these universities to sever ties with the fossil fuel industry. In early February, the UvA announced that it would not enter into any new research partnerships with Shell or similar fossil fuel industry companies until the conclusion of a UvA-wide series of dialogues on the subject. The question at the heart of the series is who we cooperate with and how. The dialogue started on 29 March. The series will continue in May and June at Science Park, on the Roeterseiland Campus and in the University Quarter.
