New research on Police and Crime Commissioners finds postcode lottery in accountability

In the run-up to May’s elections, new research has found stark differences in the calibre of Police and Crime Commissioners, with some “ill equipped”, leaving police accountability “hinging on luck”. New research, based on exclusive interviews with high-ranking figures from across UK policing, suggests a postcode lottery in police accountability. The calibre of individual Police […]

Shaping the ecological turnaround: Mathematician Sarah Wolf analyzes agent-based modeling for sustainability issues

The small calculators are very popular on the internet: You can move the controls a little and see how not eating meat or switching to public transportation can improve your individual climate balance. In principle, the models that mathematician Sarah Wolf is working on at Freie Universität function in a similar way. They too simulate […]

New book explains how famous Mummy was murdered

A new book published today explains how the famous mummy Takabuti was likely to have been murdered over 2,600 years ago. Editors Professor Rosalie David from The University of Manchester and Professor Eileen Murphy Queen’s University Belfast, say a military axe was probably used from behind as she was running away from her assailant.

Melting ice sheets caused sea levels to rise up to 18 metres

Research led by our geography department has found that previous ice loss events caused sea-levels to rise around 3.6 metres per century, offering vital clues as to what lies ahead should climate change continue. Research postgraduate Yucheng Lin worked with Dr Pippa Whitehouse, Dr Sarah Woodroffe and Prof. Ian Shennan, using geological records of past […]

Recognising early signs of heatstroke in dogs can save lives

More than half of dogs that are taken to veterinary clinics with severe heatstroke go on to die from the condition, according to a new study. The risks to dogs are much lower, however, if these cases are detected and managed earlier, veterinary researchers at Nottingham Trent University and the Royal Veterinary College found. They […]

New Emmy Noether group develops innovative methods for the investigation of crystalline materials

On 1 March 2021, the new Emmy Noether research group “Mesoscale Material Modeling and Simulations (3MS)” started working at the Faculty of Mathematics at TU Dresden. Group leader Dr. Marco Salvalaglio, an Italian physicist and material scientist, will benefit from the interdisciplinary research environment at TU Dresden, closely cooperating with the Dresden Center of Computational […]

PURILMA: Identifying Innovative technologies to disinfect water at its primary stages

A new research project led by Water Services Corporation (WSC) in collaboration with the UM’s Department of Food Science & Nutrition will help give a clear indication of potential disinfection technology that will eventually be included in the Water Services Corporation’s drinking-water production line. This project has just received funding by the Energy and Water Agency under […]

Threatened seabirds have better survival chance if they migrate for winter

Extreme storms on the east coast of Scotland are hitting the survival chances of threatened seabirds who do not migrate for the winter, according to research by the University of Aberdeen and the UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (UKCEH). Climate change is predicted to cause increased frequency and intensity of extreme weather events such […]

Artificial Intelligence makes decisions in uncertain situations

Policymakers often have to base their decisions on very limited information. Some of these decisions may have a serious impact on society in the future. The world of small business is also prone to uncertainty when making decisions, despite potentially huge consequences for both business owners and customers. As a postdoc researcher in the Operations […]

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.
