Statement on the war in Ukraine
In line with the majority of people around the world and the official statement at WU’s homepage, we at the Institute of Data, Process and Knowledge Management at WU Vienna are shocked and appalled by the war in Ukraine, and the irreversible tragedies it is causing. While individual actions may seem insignificant, we strongly believe it is important to join the collective stand in asking Putin to stop this needless deadly action, resume peace talks, and save the lives of Ukrainians and Russians alike.
Within our institute have collaborators and colleagues who have been caught up in this tragic episode and so for some of us this is deeply personal.
Below there are a collection of links where if you wish you can contribute to help and read other statements.
