A researcher from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT) has proposed a new explanation for the Arctic’s rapid warming. In his recent paper in Geosciences, he suggests that the warming could have been triggered by a series of great earthquakes. Global warming is one of the pressing issues faced by civilization. It is widely believed to be caused […]

A new study describes a potential drug target for Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome that may aid in the development of more effective treatments. Scientists have identified a potential new treatment approach for Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS), a progressive genetic disorder that causes rapid and premature ageing in children. The findings in […]

Tiny earthquakes, too small to be felt on the Earth’s surface, create chemical changes which turn groundwater acidic, according to newly-published research at the University of Strathclyde. The research paper ‘Microseismic events cause significant pH drops in groundwater’ published by Geophysical Research Letters, documents for the first time how tiny earthquakes, not […]

Today, neuroscience and robotics are developing hand in hand. Mikhail Lebedev, Academic Supervisor at HSE University’s Centre for Bioelectric Interfaces, spoke about how studying the brain inspires the development of robots. Robots are interesting to neuroscience and neuroscience is interesting to robots —this is what our article ‘Neuroengineering challenges of fusing […]

The concentration of oestrogens in the blood affect a woman’s health in many ways. For example, oestrogens contribute to a strong bone structure and help wounds heal more quickly: “When a woman reaches menopause, we see the levels of oestrogens decline and an increase of other hormones, called gonadotropins”, says Kai […]

NSU scientists developed one of the largest genetic association databases in the world. The database contains billions of associations of genome variants with human traits that were identified in hundreds of scientific studies conducted by the international scientific community. Information about these associations increases our understanding of human genetics and […]

European Higher Education Organization is a public organization carrying out academic, educational and information activities on higher education in Europe.

The EHEO general plan stresses that:

  • Higher education systems require adequate funding and, as an investment in economic growth, public spending in higher education should be protected.
  • The challenges faced by higher education require more flexible governance and funding systems, which balance greater autonomy for education institutions with accountability to stakeholders.

Thus, EHEO plans:

  • improve academic and scientific interaction of universities;
  • protect the interests of universities;
  • interact more closely with public authorities of European countries;
  • popularize European higher education in the world;
  • develop academic mobility;
  • seek funding for European universities.
