Applied Probability Trust, Statement on Ukraine

10 May 2022

The unprovoked invasion of Ukraine by the Russian government, and the Russian government’s crackdown on dissenting voices within Russia, have shocked and saddened the Trustees of the Applied Probability Trust. Our sympathy is with the citizens of Ukraine, with those dissenting voices within Russia, and with all civilians (of whatever nationality) who are endangered by this war.

The Trust hopes to find some meaningful way to help support those applied probabilists who have been adversely impacted by the current circumstances. If you have been affected, please check the Applied Probability Trust funding opportunities page in the coming months for further information.

Alternatively, you can register interest with the Applied Probability Trust office (apt@sheffield.ac.uk), so as to be notified when an APT support mechanism has been identified.
