Crowdfunding garden: 45% of goal reached!

On 5 October, we festively opened the FASoS garden and officially launched the crowdfunding to be able to decorate the garden.

So far we have reached 45% of our crowdfunding goal. Thank you very much to everyone who has donated!

You can still make a donation until the end of this year via this link: https://www.umcrowd.nl/project/give-for-a-green-faculty/donors. Donate together with your department, study programme or research group and make sure your name ends up on the hall of fame, or get a bench or picnic table with your group’s name on it!

Last FASoS Weekly for staff + reminder to register for intranet launch

Today, you have received the last FASoS Weekly for staff members in your inbox.

Don’t worry, you will still receive all necessary and fun information about FASoS, but via a different platform: UMployee. Just like the FASoS Weekly, you will still receive a weekly email in your inbox with links to all kinds of fun events, funding opportunities, publications by colleagues, etc.

If you want to share something with colleagues, have a look at this post to see how to do this. There will be no submission form anymore; you will simply post a message yourself in a group on UMployee.

To help get everyone started, we are organising a launch event for the new intranet on Tuesday 8 November from 12.00 – 14.00 in GG90-92, D1.08. Sign up here.

Reminder: sign up your UM account for Multi Factor Authentication

UM strongly believes in data protection. Therefore, UM is continuously working to improve information security. Various measures have been and are being taken to make the university network even more secure. That is why UM is switching to the use of Multi Factor Authentication (MFA).

This requires you to successfully complete two steps to access UM services. After entering your UM account and password (something you know), a second authentication step follows via a separate device, for example via your smartphone or tablet (something you have).

Join the festive opening of the FASoS garden!

On Wednesday 5 October at 15.30, we will festively open the FASoS garden (at the back of FASoS, in front of the parking lot). Enjoy a drink and a bite served by Bandito, stroll through the garden, and hear all about the plans we still have to make the garden even more enjoyable.

We are very grateful to the faculty for having covered the basic costs of transforming the concrete space behind FASoS into a garden. To be able to decorate the garden with, for example, benches and insect hotels, we will be officially launching a crowdfunding project during the opening of the garden.
