Cross-border research

Maastricht University, with four faculties and 13 PhD candidates, is literally and figuratively exploring and crossing borders. In a project led by the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASoS), PhD candidates will conduct research into the hardening and softening of borders in Europe. The faculty is working closely with University College Maastricht (UCM), the School of Business and Economics (SBE), and the Faculty of Law (FL). There is an exceptionally comprehensive PhD programme, and the PhD candidates are crossing international borders. The project LIMES, the Latin word for border, is funded by the European Commission’s Marie-Curie COFUND programme.
