Auditors Slam Red Tape at E.U. Science Funder

Auditors Slam Red Tape at E.U. Science Funder | Higher Education and academic research | Scoop.it

BRUSSELS—Scientists seeking grants from the European Union's main research funding program—known as Framework Programme 7 (FP7)—face unnecessary bureaucratic hurdles, says the European Union's budget watchdog. In a report presented here today, the European Court of Auditors writes that FP7 procedures remain complex and sometimes inconsistent, despite recent improvements.

Most people in the UK do not go to university – and maybe never will

Most people in the UK do not go to university – and maybe never will | Higher Education and academic research | Scoop.it

A recent BIS report on higher education participation was flawed, says Charlie Ball – closer analysis reveals rates well below 50%.

 

Almost everyone goes to university nowadays, everyone knows that.

Except that not everyone does and we rarely see accurate statistics about how many or what proportion of people actually do. It's quite an important question, bound up with thorny issues of workforce skills, educational aspiration and, of course, how (and how much) the UK taxpayer funds our domestic higher education sector.

Scientific Publishers Offer Solution to White House's Public Access Mandate

Scientific Publishers Offer Solution to White House's Public Access Mandate | Higher Education and academic research | Scoop.it

A group of scientific publishers today announced a plan for allowing the public to read taxpayer-funded research papers for free by linking to journals' own websites. The publishers say that this will eliminate the need for federal agencies to archive the papers themselves to comply with a new government directive. Details are sketchy, however, and it's not yet clear whether the plan will accomplish everything that the government wants from agencies. (...) - ScienceInsider, by Jocelyn Kaiser on 4 June 2013

Universities in neighbourly bid to attract US students

From Alan Wildeman’s office window, the Ambassador Bridge to the United States is “about a driver and two 3-woods away” – a few hundred metres, in golf parlance. So it is a source of frustration to the University of Windsor president that of 2,000 international students his university hosted this year from all corners of the world, only 82 came from south of the border, writes James Bradshaw for The Globe and Mail.

Betting that cost is the main barrier, the University of Windsor is creating a “US neighbour fee” that will charge undergraduates from the United States $10,000 per year – up to $10,000 less than what international students currently pay. The hope is that the university will nab some of the students planning to attend nearby schools such as Michigan University or Detroit’s Wayne State University.

An open and dynamic research community exists, HackYourPhd invites you to discover it and show you that we all have a role to play!

 

What do we know about the research world? Often not much or nothing very attractive. The community of researchers seems too often walled up in its ivory tower.

Yet, a committed group of people and initiatives aiming to open up this research in order to make it more dynamic, collaborative, and transparent does exist.

 

This movement began largely in the United States, which is why Célya, cofounder of HackYourPhD, invites you to go on a journey. Through a web-documentary, discover the current situation of scientific research, which is far from being heartening. But also meet those in the USA who imagine and work to build a more open science! This investigative project relates to research, design, entrepreneurship, and hacking, and those involved devote a considerable amount of work and expertise to it. The freedom of expression that this campaign provides is an inexhaustible source of innovative ideas and an extremely fertile setting for those who need inspiration.

The bill, which comes hand in hand with a new strategic plan for France's research priorities, also gives the government a greater role in coordinating research. The bill and the road map have been sharply criticized by various groups of researchers and university professors.(...) - ScienceInsider, by Elisabeth Pain on 30 May 2013

In its five years of existence, the European Research Council (ERC) has funded over 3,000 top researchers in the EU and its associated countries, with a budget of € 7.5 billion. “Being ‘investigator-driven’, or ‘bottom-up’, the ERC allows researchers to identify new opportunities and directions in all fields of research,” explains ERC-president Helga Nowotny who also works for Vienna Science and Technology Fund and is professor emerita of ETH Zurich, Switzerland. “There are neither thematic priorities, nor geographical quotas for funding,” she adds. -
