La délocalisation des universités, une stratégie adaptée au milieu?

L'Université de Sherbrooke à Longueuil, l'Université du Québec à Rimouski à Lévis, l'Université de Montréal à Laval... Toutes ces institutions multiplient leurs sites d'activité, allant parfois s'installer à quelques pas les unes des autres. Certains y voient une saine concurrence qui répond à des besoins réels, d'autres y perçoivent le symptôme d'une dérive dans la gestion des universités. Nous faisons le point sur ce débat à quelques jours de la troisième rencontre préparatoire au sommet sur la gouvernance des universités québécoises. (...) - Radio-Canada.ca, 13/01/2013

Seeing academic disciplines as brands

Collectif PAPERA's insight:

I used to think that being in an academic discipline was like standing in the corner of a room. When you are in it you know you are and so does everyone else. But once you start to drift… it’s not so clear whether you are in or out. These days, in many areas of academic study, the important discussions are happening in the middle of the room, not the corners.

Director lays out workforce initiatives geared towards early-career scientists.

 

For years, the US National Institutes of Health has struggled with promoting non-academic career tracks for biomedical scientists, gauging the supply of PhD holders and demand for research jobs, enticing under-represented minorities into science and establishing funding avenues for early-career researchers. Hoping to bring some evidence-based clarity to these issues, NIH director Francis Collins asked two working groups of the NIH Advisory Committee to study the issues and make recommendations. They released their recommendations in two reports in June; Collins responded in December. (...) - by Gene Russo, Naturejobs, Nature 493, 443-444 (2013)
