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 […]

New theory about spread of antibiotic resistance

Pathogenic bacteria in humans are developing resistance to antibiotics much faster than expected. Now, computational research at Chalmers shows that one reason could be significant genetic transfer between bacteria in our ecosystems and to humans. This work has also led to new tools for resistance researchers.​​According to the World Health Organisation, antibiotic resistance is one […]

Laws around HIV transmissions need urgent update

The criminal law in relation to HIV transmission has not kept up with the science, according to a team of researchers based at Oxford Brookes, Northumbria and Kingston universities. Alex Powell, Teaching Fellow in Law at Oxford Brookes University said: “The criminal law has continued to frame HIV in terms of personal responsibility and bodily […]

Hull researcher uncovers new evidence on some of earth’s earliest marine life

Fossils found in Australia and studied by a University of Hull researcher have revealed new details on some of the earliest marine life on Earth. Experts uncovered fossils of Earth’s first macroscopic animals – the roughly 550-million-year-old Ediacara biota – in South Australia’s Flinders Ranges. Scientists had previously thought that these archaic lifeforms lived out to sea […]

Nottingham plays key role in getting Oxford Covid vaccine approved

Staff from the University of Nottingham have played a key role in leading the distribution of the approved Oxford/AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine to members of the public across the UK this week. The regulator, the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) reviewed the data collected by researchers, including those based at the University of Nottingham […]

Research at the heart of La Statale’s public mission

The University of Milan is a leading Italian university for investment in research infrastructure and human capital: two essential elements for tackling the complex challenges of knowledge in a rapidly changing social and industrial context. As a public institution concerned with the development and progress of knowledge, the University has always been committed to research […]

Powerful graphene hybrid material for highly efficient supercapacitors |Supercapacitors challenge batteries|

A team working with Roland Fischer, Professor of Inorganic and Metal-Organic Chemistry at the Technical University Munich (TUM) has developed a highly efficient supercapacitor. The basis of the energy storage device is a novel, powerful and also sustainable graphene hybrid material that has comparable performance data to currently utilized batteries. Usually, energy storage is associated […]

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.
