US: NIH Fact Sheet Lays Out Sequester Impact

Three months after Congress approved mandatory across-the-board 5% budget cuts due to sequestration, the National Institutes of Health today described in grim detail how it is absorbing the loss of $1.55 billion.

This means every area of medical research will be affected," a fact sheet states. (...) - ScienceInsider, by Jocelyn Kaiser on 4 June 2013

Horizon 2020 : « Nous voulons conserver une alternative au remboursement forfaitaire » (eurodéputé Christian Ehler à AEF)

« Nous avons proposé un compromis excluant les industriels de la possibilité d'un mode de financement en coût complet, parce que nous estimons qu'ils pourront faire face [à des frais supplémentaires]. Mais nous voulons conserver une alternative au remboursement forfaitaire, au moins pour les universités et les organismes de recherche. Notre proposition a été rejetée par le Conseil et la Commission. » C'est ce que déclare à AEF mercredi 29 mai 2013 l'eurodéputé Christian Ehler (PPE), rapporteur pour les règles de participation à Horizon 2020, au surlendemain d'une réunion de concertation « trilogue » entre le Parlement, la Commission et le Conseil qui a échoué à lever les derniers obstacles à un compromis sur le prochain PCRD. « Il ne nous reste que quelques semaines [de négociations] si nous voulons être sûrs que le programme puisse commencer en janvier 2014 », alerte l'eurodéputé.

[Australia] Half the nation’s PhD holders are from overseas | Higher Education and academic research | Scoop.it

In the 1850s, Chinese immigrants referred to the Australian gold fields as Xin Jin Shan, the New Gold Mountain, whereas the Californian gold rush was in decline and had become known as Jiu Jin Shan, the Old Gold Mountain. In the 21st century, a new group of Chinese has come to Australia seeking the gold that is linked to obtaining a degree.

Although universities in many Western countries are enrolling increasing numbers of Chinese, few could match the proportionate flood into Australian higher education, where the offspring of parents in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore now number more than 150,000.(...) - University World News, by Geoff Maslen, 18 May 2013 Issue No:272

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.

Italian Parliament Orders €3 Million Trial of Disputed Therapy

The Italian Parliament has decided that the administration of a controversial stem cell treatment for neurodegenerative diseases, provided by the Stamina Foundation in Turin, can continue—although on only a small scale. Lawmakers also ordered a formal clinical trial of the therapy and allocated €3 million to pay for it. The law, opposed by many stem cell scientists, became official after it was approved by Italy's Chamber of Deputies on 20 May and by the Senate 2 days later. Although some patients say that they have benefited from the treatment, researchers contend that the Stamina Foundation's therapy hasn't been properly described, let alone shown to be effective.
