En Espagne, être étudiant après 30 ans est de plus en plus courant

En Espagne, être étudiant après 30 ans est de plus en plus courant | Higher Education and academic research | Scoop.it

En Espagne, 35% des étudiants en Master sont aujourd'hui âgés de plus trente ans, selon les derniers chiffres du ministère de l'Education nationale, dévoilés par le quotidien espagnol El Pais. La présence de ces élèves trentenaires aurait augmenté de 167% depuis le début des années 2000. Si ce vieillissement n’est pas un phénomène nouveau, ni propre à l’Espagne, il a été renforcé avec la crise économique. Quel est le profil de ces étudiants et quelles sont les conséquences de cette tendance sur leur mode de vie? Explications du sociologue espagnol Antonio Ariño, professeur à l'Université de Valence.

The Spanish National Research Council, Spain's flagship research agency, has run massive deficits for several years.

Cumulating R&D cuts does not bode well for the future of Spain

Cumulating R&D cuts does not bode well for the future of Spain | Higher Education and academic research | Scoop.it

For the fourth consecutive year, resources allocated by the Spanish Government to R&D have been reduced. To assess its real impact, we need a detailed analysis. However, facts already speak for themselves.  The 2013 annual budget approved by the Spanish Parliament reveals the government’s actual policy regarding R&D. To say the least, it is not always in line with politicians’ statements in the media. We outline below the conclusions from a study on the Spanish R&D policy commissioned by COSCE, the confederation of Spanish scientific societies. (...) - Euroscientist Blog, May 23rd, 2013

Espagne : un prof de fac découvre qu’il a été viré en tirant de l’argent

« Je suis arrivée jeudi dernier à 10 heures du soir à la gare de Chamartin (Madrid) après une semaine de vacances. Je me suis approchée d’un distributeur pour sortir de l’rgent pour mon taxi. Là, j’ai vu que j’avais 12 000 euros sur mon compte. J’ai pensé que le distributeur était devenu fou parce que je n ’avais que 2 000 euros d’économie. Le lendemain, j’ai remis le nez dans mes comptes et j’ai vu que j’avais eu un virement de 10 000 euros. Objet : indemnisation pour licenciement. Voila comment j’ai été viré de Universidad Rey Juan Carlos “ (...) - Rue89

Spanish scientists protest to save research

Spanish scientists protest to save research | Higher Education and academic research | Scoop.it
Researchers march in 19 cities against steadily waning science budget.

 

Scientists gathered in public meetings in 19 Spanish cities this morning under the slogan ‘Let’s save research’. The gatherings were called by the Letter for Science movement, a coalition that includes the main scientific organizations of the country.

According to the movement, 5,000 scientists in Madrid marched from the central building of the National Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) to the economy ministry — which is responsible for science — to deliver an open letter proposing 'ten commandments', aimed at stopping “the ruin of the Spanish science system”.

Spanish scientists complain about unspent budget

Spanish scientists complain about unspent budget | Higher Education and academic research | Scoop.it

The Confederation of Spanish Scientific Societies (COSCE) has accused the Spanish government of “tarting up” the R&D budget, after finding evidence that an increasing portion of the money assigned to science has been left unspent since 2008.

 

The difference is mainly due to a pot of money for loans for applied research, which the government included in the budget but companies left largely untouched, according to COSCE’s study presented yesterday in Madrid. (...) - Nature News Blog, 28 Sep 2012, by Brian Owens
