Solidarity with Israel

CRC 1052 statement of support

Our CRC community would like to express their profound sorrow and sincere sympathy in the face of the recent horrific terrorist attacks. No words can adequately convey the depth of pain and despair caused by these tragic events.

Our long-standing and close partnerships with researchers from the Ben Gurion University of the Negev and other partners in Israel have always been characterized by universal values such as peace, understanding, democracy and academic freedom. The CRC 1052 stands in full solidarity with our friends, collaboration partners, scientists and students, with whom we have developed close friendships and meaningful scientific relationships over the past decades.

The Executive Board of the CRC 1052
