Elections and the future of the EU

Europe is going through quite a difficult period; facing turbulent times and big important questions coming along forces the EU to think how it is going to shape its future. What kind of solutions it will it be able to make and how well will they work eventually. The European Union has survived before, so now it just needs to focus on solving problems in a innovative way and try to keep people trusting and believing on the work of Union. Europe has to be able to react quickly for the changing reality and to turn the challenges in to possibilities.

A ciência enquanto bem público

O ensino superior e a ciência têm de estar no cerne da agenda política para o país. O ensino superior e ciência em Portugal tem sido palco de um crescimento continuado ao longo das últimas décadas. Este crescimento traduziu-se, por exemplo, num importante aumento dos recursos humanos ativos, com destaque para o crescente número de doutoramentos, no aumento muito notável da produção científica, traduzida em artigos publicados, e também na capacidade de captação de financiamento internacional. Contudo, este crescimento ocorreu num quadro de subfinanciamento crónico das instituições e de crescente precarização laboral. Entretanto, os indícios de afunilamento das áreas de investigação; de transferência parcial das responsabilidades de investimento em ensino superior e ciência para o setor privado; de insuficiências na […]

Election time

The occasion for a young Italian man to discuss about European unity. In this exact historical moment Italy is facing some troubles on the road to European unity: year by year too many governments have risen to power, each of them ruled by different parties and political figures, sometimes with diametrically opposed ideas about how to deal with Europe and its politics. Now more than ever, it is essential to work towards unity; in a world where the powers become bigger and more centralized there’s no space for fishes that swim alone. Moreover the European dream is not anymore something unavailable and far from our reality, it is slowly happening in front of our eyes, and an initiative such as […]

Flexibilidade curricular e Eurydice

Tempos atribuídos nas matrizes curriculares nas Ciências e Estudos Sociais foram ignorados pela rede Eurydice, o que impede a comparação de Portugal com outros países. O mais recente relatório da Eurydice, a rede europeia de informação sobre educação, que analisa os tempos dedicados ao ensino, não contabilizou, este ano, as horas que Portugal dedica à instrução das disciplinas incluídas nos campos das Ciências Naturais e dos Estudos Sociais. Porquê? Segundo o próprio relatório Recommended Annual Instruction Time in Full-time Compulsory Education in Europe 2018-2019, porque estas são áreas “obrigatórias com flexibilidade de tempo”. Ou seja, o alargamento, este ano, a todas as escolas, da flexibilidade curricular levou a Comissão Europeia a deixar de fazer estas contas no caso nacional. O […]

European Union and the elections

This article is about the importance of the European Union and the next European election. Since I applied for my voluntary service on Madeira I realized how important European connections and projects are to get to learn new languages, cultures and moreover to develop further as a human being, such as a big community. Being part of the European Union makes me aware of many benefits we have because of this interconnectedness. Our possibility to go abroad has changed a lot in the last few years and it is getting easier with every year. As a result of the EU, we have more chances to take part in Erasmus projects or student exchanges than ever before. But being part of […]
