Escritora e activista polaca receberá o prémio relativo ao ano de 2018, o dramaturgo austríaco é o vencedor de 2019. Olga Tokarczuk é a 15.ª mulher a receber o prémio que, contrariando algumas expectativas, a Academia Sueca decidiu entregar a dois autores europeus.

Ficarão a marcar, na centenária história do mais importante galardão literário do mundo, um momento de profunda renovação da Academia Sueca, a procurar reerguer-se do escândalo de abusos sexuais perpetrados por Jean-Claude Arnault, marido da académica Katarina Frostenson, através de quem este teria também sabido por antecipação […]

The University of Lodz

I had the pleasure of learning and acquiring knowledge from the best professors at this university. The University of Lodz was established in 1945 and has long been one of the biggest and most popular universities in Poland. High level of education, learning foreign languages, scholarships, student exchange programs are just some of the advantages that I experienced by my own.  The 12 faculties, and a branch unit of the University provide programmes in 100 fields of study and 160 specializations. In addition, the University offers several doctoral programmes, more than 50 postgraduate study programmes, as well as studies in English and French. More than 28 000 students attend the University of Lodz.  The University is also very open for […]

Rede que liga fagos de todo o mundo

Há já uma rede de investigadores que troca informação sobre a terapia fágica e fornece fagos em caso de necessidade. Imagine que alguém tem uma infecção de uma bactéria resistente a um antibiótico e a única solução é ser tratado através da terapia fágica, uma abordagem terapêutica que usa vírus (bacteriófagos) para matar bactérias específicas. Adelaide Almeida, do Centro de Estudos do Ambiente e do Mar da Universidade de Aveiro, alerta que seria útil a criação de um banco de dados com informação sobre todos os bacteriófagos (ou fagos) que cada laboratório do mundo produz. Assim, esse laboratório poderia disponibilizar o fago para tratar a infecções ou para ensaios clínicos, aumentando assim a rapidez desses testes. Neste momento, já existe […]

Can the European project survive?

The project “Europe” is stumbling. Now more than ever. Opinions tend to differ sharply when it comes to questions concerning refugees, the rise of far right parties and racism against minorities. The European Union seems to fall apart as countries discuss the leaving of this once-so-promising project. So the question arises, what can we – as individuals – do to save this venture? How can we make sure that our grandchildren will have the same privileges that we have now?  I think the most basic and most important precondition is to be OPEN. To be open towards new cultures, new people, new habits. To be open towards new norms, new ideas, new point of views. Only when we mutually approach […]

Nobel da Paz 2019 para Abiv Ahmed

O primeiro-ministro etíope ganhou o 100.º Nobel da Paz pelos seus esforços para “alcançar a paz e a cooperação internacional” com os acordos de paz com a Eritreia. O vencedor do Prémio Nobel da Paz de 2019 é Abiy Ahmed Ali, primeiro-ministro etíope, anunciaram nesta sexta-feira em Oslo as Academias sueca e norueguesa. O prémio foi atribuído pelos seus esforços para “alcançar a paz e a cooperação internacional” com os acordos de paz com a Eritreia. “A paz não chega das acções de apenas uma parte. Quando o primeiro-ministro estendeu a sua mão, Isaias Afewerki [Presidente da Eritreia] agarrou-a e ajudou a formalizar o processo de paz entre os dois países”, justificou Berit Reiss-Andersen, líder​ do comité que atribui este […]

A Europe for the future

How can we ensure that the European Union operates in the best way to support all future generations? For someone from the United Kingdom, the European Union is incredibly important for us now more than ever. Therefore, I believe that the most important thing I can do for the EU and my country is to show my support for remaining in the EU. The EU brings many benefits to a country, in my opinion, I care mostly about the ease of travel. Without the EU I would not be able to travel as easily or possibly take part in Erasmus at all. It is so important for young people to be able to travel, study and work in new places. […]

Europe of my grandchildren

In the time when Europe faces many challenges it is important to ask ourselves: what can I do to support EU and projects which it fulfils.  The most important thing which we must realize is that our action can make a difference! How do I understand that, and what can be our contribution in the development of European Projects, you can find out reading this article.  Firstly, taking the opportunity to vote in European Elections, as this is the only one occasion for the nearest 5 years for citizens of Europe to have an influence on shape of European Parliament as it is the only institution among the EU which is chosen through elections in EU countries. This institution approves […]

The European Elections

The European elections never really mobilised people. Since 1979, the rate of abstention is in freefall in France. However, at this time of political and environmental crisis, the next ones in May could represent high stakes for the future of everyone. Usually used by the French politicians as a sort of instrumentalization of the national politics, this year those elections should carry a more important meaning. The opposition of Macron’s politics would like to sell those elections as a referendum against the actual government in power in France. Beyond this national dissension, appears an actual dichotomy through the all European Union between those who still believe in a Union in agreement with the historical project started in 1945 and those […]

EU: the challenges of the future!

Nowadays the European Union must face many challenges which affects the image of this institution. Elections for the European Parliament are coming, which means this is the only occasion for the nearest 5 years for citizens of Europe to have an influence on the shape of the EU body structure, as European Parliament is the only one institution among the EU which is chosen through elections in EU countries. This is a very important institution, as it approves most of the legal acts and budget for European projects, at the same time it is the most transparent and open organization. Currently the EU faces a lot of problems, such as the migration crisis, Brexit, braking European values, social system, protection […]

Together we can do better!

In May, the call for European elections is opening and all European citizens are needed to express their desire to get involved in politics. These are not simple elections, this is an international event in which we are involved as protagonists because the future of the European Union depends on us. The EU is experiencing a moment of crisis due to the national political transformations that are happening, the international emergency related to the migratory fluxes that are occurring and the lack of common intents between the countries that constitute the monetary and economic Union. The number of populist parties that are rising in power in national contexts is increasing as a result of the boom in nationalism, economic autarky […]

United EU, a project by Thomas More

To be honest, writing about the importance of the next election in the European Parliament is really tough. Even though I have always been interested in politics, if you do not do research on your own, you might not know a lot about EU-politics. For me the next elections are going to be quite important in the sense of which parties will allow what kind of national policy. In theory the word “Öxit” used to exist but has not been used since at least two years. Austria knows it would be nothing without the EU and since this knowledge arrived in peoples heads, even the right wing party FPÖ stopped using this topic for their populism. Since Madeira is what […]

France and the european elections

About the European project and the next elections, France is quite divided, such as numerous countries in the Union. Firstly, about the elections for the European Parliament, France is not really involved, the people don’t really care about this election, this one of the elections with the highest rate of people who don’t vote. And this is for many reasons, first because Brussels and the Parliament always seem to be far away from the National needs. There is also a big lack of trust in the European institution. Like in almost all the European countries people are afraid to lose political power and ability to take some decision in profit of the European Parliament. But this election is still important, […]

May 2019 and the future of the EU!

The European elections in May 2019 will have a direct impact on our life. The European Parliament is the only supranational, democratically elected parliament in the world. All adult EU citizens will have an opportunity to select who will represent them and how Europe will act in the coming years. The European Union currently consists of 28 member states and is largely viewed as a cornerstone of European stability and prosperity, however, many EU countries have faced considerable economic difficulties. The EU has had to deal with a series of crises in these last few years: the Brexit negotiations, the trade dispute with the United States, the growth of right-wing populist movements, a democracy and rule-of-law concerns in Poland (since […]
