Students presented LSMU in France and Finland

The LSMU Ambassador Programme was introduced in 2016 and seeks to involve international students into a voluntary activity aiming at promotion of the LSMU in foreign countries. The information about the ambassadors and their contacts are provided in the LSMU website as well as it is spread during the presentations of the LSMU in various countries. The LSMU Ambassador Programme involves 17 international students from 11 countries. Ambassadors consult by e-mails those who are interested in studies at the LSMU and share their experience of studies and life in Lithuania, participate in the University “Open Days” and international study fairs.  A second-year student Emma Gonzales Mourier presented the LSMU at two schools in France. She shared her impressions of the newly gained experiences, “Thanks to the LSMU Ambassador Programme, I had an opportunity to tell French high school students about the study programmes at the LSMU. While this was an invaluable personal experience for me, it was also a great opportunity for the high school students to learn more about the LSMU and to think about their career choices. This experience boosted my self-confidence and, most importantly, I realized that I could contribute to making the dreams of young and motivated people come true.”  

The Faculty as an International Space Station, bringing together experts from around the world

Stockholm reporting continued growth in international student numbers.

  In 2011, the Swedish government decided to introduce higher education tuition fees for non-European Union/non-European Economic Area students. The number of foreign students in Sweden promptly declined and continued to do so until about 2014, when we first observed a modest recovery. A new report from the Stockholm Academic Forum (STAF) – a peak body made up of local government plus the city’s 18 higher education institutions – provides further evidence of continuing growth since 2014, with foreign student numbers in Stockholm now approaching 2011 levels for the first time since the new tuition policy was introduced. Study Destination Stockholm: Report on International Student Mobility, Stockholm 2017-2018 reports just under 10,000 international students in Stockholm as of the 2017/18 academic year. Those numbers have grown by 5% year-over-year, about 20% in total over the last three years, and are on pace to surpass the previous high point from 2011 sometime this year. Roughly one in four international students in Sweden is studying in Stockholm and so the report also provides an interesting directional indicator as to overall student numbers in the country.

The University of Ostrava has acquired the institutional accreditation

As only the 6th university in the Czech Republic the University of Ostrava has acquired the so called “institutional accreditation” which confirmes its quality and it gives the university considerable freedom. It has succeeded in seven areas of education, by which it has covered majority of its study programmes.    The university was preparing for two years for the whole process. It was needed to adjust most of the current university international regulations and to accept few new, to establish the Board of internal evaluation of the University of Ostrava, to set a new system of evaluation of study programmes, to accept its own standards of the study programmes quality and to prepare the specific application for the institutional accreditation.     The new system of accreditation means significant changes for the applicants. From the academic year 2019/2020 the universities will be changing the existing arrangement of study programmes which were divided into study fields and will turn to newly accredited study programmes allowing specialization.   So far only five Czech universities have got the institutional accreditation. The first one was the Charles University in Prague, second Masaryk University in Brno, then Palacky University Olomouc, university in Pardubice and the Technical University of Ostrava.

Record numbers from China and Hong Kong applying to study in UK

Record numbers of students from China and Hong Kong are applying for places at British universities, overtaking the number of applicants from Wales, according to official figures. Data from the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (Ucas) shows a spike in demand for undergraduate places from mainland China and a small rise in applications from the EU, despite fears over Brexit. The figures taken from Ucas’s January deadline, when the bulk of undergraduate applications are made, show a 1% decline in UK applicants, but a 9% surge from international candidates meant the total number of applications went up for the first time in three years. The number of applications from China and Hong Kong rose from more than 17,000 last year to 21,000 this year. In contrast, only 18,850 applications came from Wales, meaning that if those trends are sustained there will soon be more undergraduates from China studying at British universities than from Wales. Last year there were also more than 100,000 postgraduate students from China and Hong Kong at British universities, out of nearly 350,000 full-time postgraduates.

Malta is one of the safest countries in the world

Malta is a generally safe country that receives numerous foreign tourists on a yearly basis. However, crimes of opportunity and violent crime do occur. Most street crimes are non-violent and non-confrontational and range from scams to petty theft. Theft of cell phones, computers, money, jewelry, and iPods is common. Visitors should keep these items out of sight and only use them in safe locations. Most street criminals are unarmed and are not prone to gratuitous violence. Victims of street crime are often inattentive targets of opportunity. Women should keep purses zipped and in front of them. Wear the shoulder straps of bags across your chest. Keep your money, credit cards, wallet, and other valuables in your front pockets. In 2016, crime statistics revealed that theft was the predominate criminal offense, making up over half of the crimes committed in Malta. Assaults numbered under 1,000, with the peak being June, July, and August (height of tourism season). Nationwide crime rates are higher in areas frequented by tourists to include: St. Julians, Mdina, Valletta, Floriana, Sliema, Saint Paul’s Bay, and Ta’ Xbiex. The areas of St Julian’s, Sliema, Valletta, and St Paul’s Bay – accounted for 55% of reported criminal incidents in 2016. Paceville’s draw is the nightclub and restaurant scene. This densely populated area is known for excessive alcohol consumption and the heavy-handed tactics of nightclub bouncers. Isolated incidents have been reported by foreign visitors who have been injured as a result.   In May 2016, a 37-year old Colombian man was critically injured and later passed away in a hospital following an attack by two men in Paceville. There have also been reported incidents of spiked drinks, leading to theft and assault. The Embassy recommends club visitors not leave drinks unattended, be aware of their belongings, especially smartphones, and avoid confrontations by departing the area should an issue present itself. Increased police focus throughout 2016 to combat the high crime in Paceville resulted in a 10% reduction in reported crimes observed from 2015 to 2016.   https://www.osac.gov/pages/ContentReportDetails.aspx?cid=21337

Experts Weigh In: Will Your Degree Help You Get a Job?

The 'skills gap' is a frequent topic of conversation for educators and employers alike. Which begs the question: Are colleges sending their graduates out in the world with the skills they need to succeed in their careers? A recent Harvard Business Review (HBR) article takes a closer look at the issue. Here’s what you need to know. “A Clear Premium on Education” An abundance of evidence points to the fact that the return on investment (ROI) of a university degree is at an all-time high. However, as more people attend college and get degrees, their value decreases. For example, having a college degree in Scandinavia -- where 40 percent of the adult population is college-educated -- equates to a nine per cent increase in earnings. Comparatively,  in sub-Saharan Africa -- where far fewer people go to college -- the earnings boost spikes to 20 percent. Furthermore, as university qualifications become more common, there’s increasing demand for these credentials -- whether or not they are strictly necessary for the job at hand. A Push for a Paradigm Shift HBR  calls for colleges to shift their focus to address how they can help their graduates be job-ready. Specifically, HBR proposes that colleges should spend more time cultivating soft skills in students. “Recruiters and employers are unlikely to be impressed by candidates unless they can demonstrate a certain degree of people-skills. This is perhaps one of the biggest differences between what universities and employers look for in applicants. While employers want candidates with higher levels of EQ, resilience, empathy, and integrity, those rarely attribute that universities nurture or select for in admissions,” argues HBR. In our tech-centric world, this approach also acknowledges the importance of workers who can do tasks that machines cannot. The takeaway? While there are challenges facing today’s employers, there is also massive growth potential for colleges and students. “There is also a huge opportunity for colleges to restore their relevance by helping to fill the learning gap many managers face when they are promoted into a leadership role,” HBR concludes.

Three universities became one of Vytautas Magnus University

2019 January 1 The reorganization of the Lithuanian University of Educational Sciences (LEU) and Aleksandras Stulginskis University (ASU) ended with the connection to Vytautas Magnus University (VMU). This is the first step in the restructuring of the university network planned by the Lithuanian Government. On Thursday, a press conference organized by the Government introduced the integration of these universities and other stages. Since the beginning of this year, three universities have officially become a consolidated Vytautas Magnus University, which will be the most comprehensive and will carry out research and studies in the fields of humanitarian, social, physical, arts, biomedicine, technology and agriculture. Integration aims to ensure high quality of studies and science, to reduce the duplication of study programs, to promote interdisciplinary research and to use research and study infrastructure efficiently. After the merger LEU becomes VMU Academy of Education and ASU - VMU Agricultural Academy. Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis noted that the reform of higher education is one of the most important work of the Government. This reform involves not only merging processes but also the restructuring of funding, quality assurance of services, and the improvement of wages and working conditions. The strengthening of universities has always been the focus of this reform. “We are delighted with the first official fruit of the reform, and especially that it originated from the universities themselves. It is very important to hear the voice of the university communities in the transformation of this scale, and we have certainly done this in this case - we have revised the Government's proposals in the light of the visions of the universities themselves. I believe that this merger will strengthen the scientific potential of universities, interdisciplinary science and studies, attract more students and improve teacher training in Kaunas, bringing together researchers, researchers and practitioners in the field of education at the VMU Academy of Education, ”said the head of government. "This connection opens up opportunities for conducting research of a completely different quality and organizing studies that meet the requirements of the time and expectations of the future, providing a wide range of education", VMU Rector prof. Juozas Augutis. According to the VMU Rector, the synergy of different experiences and competencies enables researchers from the best Western universities to work at first glance in unrelated areas such as humanities and technology experts. In accordance with the objectives of "Society 5.0", studies and research will be carried out in a complex manner, combining interdisciplinary potential in such topical topics as bioeconomy, biotechnology, artificial intelligence, agro-innovation, circular economy, technology law, climate change, sustainable development, teacher training, and others. “The transformation of the higher education system and network optimization was necessary in the Lithuanian education system. I am pleased to have the opportunity to participate in consolidation processes and to be part of it. All that is happening at the moment is a very big responsibility for all the uniting universities, now the heads of the academies, and the whole community, so there will be a lot of work to do here. It is understandable that this will not be implemented in a short period of time ”, - said Greta Šmaižyt?, President of VMU Student Representation. New structures of VMU academic and non-academic units have already been approved. The merger of universities changes the situation: optimization of infrastructure, merging of duplicating functions, integration of study programs and faculties. The main purpose of this transformation is to create a system that allows for horizontal cooperation - there will be no separate structures or separate management.

A tool from Artificial Intelligence to evaluate the survival of preterm infants

The study which led to the creation of PISA was, therefore, the first on a worldwide basis to gather such an enormous quantity of data; in particular, the researchers used information from the Italian Neonatal Network, a project which includes 89 hospitals all over Italy with Versilia Hospital as one of the coordinating centres. “Each year around 4,500 infants are born very preterm, before the 30th week of gestation or weighing less than 1,500g, and while they represent less than 1% of births, they account for more than half the rate of infant mortality in Italy and the developed countries,” emphasizes Luigi Gagliardi. “ PISA, therefore, represents an important tool both in the care of individual patients, and to increase understanding over the causes of mortality, in order to identify more effective therapies, and ultimately to improve the prognosis of this fragile population.” The creation of PISA, also funded by the University of Pisa thanks to PRA (the University of Pisa Research Project) ‘Metodologie informatiche avanzate per l’analisi di dati biomedici’, is part of the research activity carried out by the Computational Intelligence & Machine Learning group, CIML-Unipi, and includes PhD student Marco Podda who is the co-author of the work.

The University of Pisa honoured the best doctoral theses of 2018

Saturday 24th November saw a new encounter with excellence for the University of Pisa which celebrated the latest edition of the PhDay 2018, a day dedicated to the university doctoral research. The events in the programme also included the awarding of six prizes to honour the most deserving doctoral theses discussed during the last year, one prize for each area of knowledge. The papers were chosen on the basis of the originality and innovation of the results obtained, the relevance in the sector of reference and the impact on internationalisation of the research carried out. Six new promising researchers, four ladies and two men, four from Tuscany and two from Sicily. Here are their names and the fruits of their labours: Edoardo Battaglia, PhD in Information Engineering, was awarded the prize for his thesis "Touch on the Go: Wearable Haptics for Sensing and Augmented Perception"; Rossella Bruno, PhD in Clinical Physiopathology, received the prize for her thesis "Analysis and validation of new biomarkers for the diagnosis of malignant pleural mesothelioma"; Regina Fichera, PhD in Sciences of Antiquity and Archeology, was the best in the Arts sector with a thesis entitled "Il miracolo nelle biografie dei filosofi neoplatonici della tarda antichità (IV-VI sec. d.C.)". The other three winners are Anna Grassi, the youngest (born in 1989), for her thesis "Collisionless shocks in the context of laboratory astrophy", once again contradicting the prejudice – if there were any need - which is always difficult to overcome about the relationship between women and scientific disciplines;Patrizia Pacini Volpe, PhD in Political Science, with her paper " Anatomia della prigione. Aspetti politico-sociali della condizione carceraria in Italia e in Francia"; and Alberto Vangelisti, PhD in Sciences of Agriculture, Food and the Agricultural Environment, for the thesis "Transcriptome analysis of plants-fungus interaction: RNA-seq approach on sunflower (Helianthus annus L.) mycorrhizal roots".   The award ceremony, officiated by the rector Paolo Mancarella with the delegate to doctoral research, Marcella Aglietti, and the twenty-three doctoral programme coordinators based in the University of Pisa (there are another 10 in convention with other universities) took place during the course of the Diploma Ceremony when around 220 new PhDs were awarded for this year.  The day began with the inauguration of the doctoral programme academic year at the University of Pisa, in the presence of many of the over 700 candidates, 260 of whom from the first year alone. The Day was entitled “La ricerca cambia la vita” (Research changes your life), and the value of this experience gained along the doctoral journey was presented by four former students who, having received their degree or PhD from the University of Pisa, have continued their academic and professional journey with success and great personal gratification, both in Italy and the world in general. Thus, Alessandro Launaro, born in 1979 and a former PHD student in Ancient History, recounted how he has become one of the world’s most renowned specialists in the history of Roman Italy: he is at present Senior Lecturer at the University of Cambridge, Director of Studies in Classics at Gonville and Caius College and alongside Martin Millet is head of an archeological research project at the Roman town of Interamna Lirenas. Of equal importance is Piergiorgio Morosini who received his PhD in Private Law at Pisa. He later became the magistrate who presented the preliminary hearing in the so-called “State-Mafia Pact” case, and from 2014-2018 was a member of the Italian High Council of the Judiciary. The PhD in Information Engineering from the University of Pisa completed in 1997 was, instead, the means that allowed Riccardo Marian, after his research at CERN and the foundation of Yogitech, to achieve the title of Intel Fellow and the role of Chief Functional Safety Technologist for the whole Internet of Things group of Intel Corporation. Yet another example is the case of Dr Francesca Iezzi, who graduated in Mathematics at the University of Pisa and has been with the University of Edinburgh since 2017 where she leads the outreach activities for the School of Mathematics. Four inspiring and motivating models for the young listeners. The programme also included various seminars and workshops on the training opportunities specifically dedicated to the PhD students, as well as research laboratories, panel sessions and information display areas set up by the PhD office and the Italian Association of PhD students and PhDs.“The University of Pisa“, said the rector Mancarella, “places great emphasis on PhDs, with a significant investment of over 5 million euros for 2019, a much higher figure than other universities of the same size. This regard for the PhD programmes has led to other important acknowledgements, such as the reform of the Statute, the highest body of academic government, where a place has been assigned to the PhD student representatives, the creation of a bursary in memory of Giulio Regeni and in the following semester, the creation of over 20 cross-ranging didactic modules in accordance with the highest formative parameters in third-level education in the field of Italian and international research”.
