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 […]

Europe’s impact

A lot is happening in the world right now that can make or break our future and the future of generations yet to come: climate change, wars, natural disasters, overpopulation, starvation. None of these issues can be made undone but we can strive to solve them before they get worse and worse. The European Union plays a big part in this and in shaping the future for not only Europe and its citizens but also the rest of the world. The European Parliament makes a lot of important decisions about issues like the ones listed earlier. To some it may seem like they have no influence on these issues as an individual but that is not true at all. One […]

EUA financia investigadora do i3S

A investigadora Salomé Pinho, do Instituto de Investigação e Inovação em Saúde (i3S) da Universidade do Porto, vai analisar os dados de 600 militares e procurar biomarcadores para a doença de Crohn e para a colite ulcerosa. Aproveitando o rigoroso acompanhamento que é feito aos militares norte-americanos, a equipa de investigadores liderada pela portuguesa Salomé Pinho vai estudar o desenvolvimento da doença inflamatória intestinal (DII). A cientista do Instituto de Investigação e Inovação em Saúde (I3S) da Universidade do Porto conseguiu um apoio de um milhão de euros do Departamento de Defesa dos EUA e vai procurar nos dados recolhidos nos seis anos anteriores ao diagnóstico da doença os primeiros sinais do problema em indivíduos (todos militares da Marinha) que […]

My grandchildren’s Europe

The question we are going to ask ourselves today is: how can we contribute to create a bright European future for our grandchildren? In order to answer that question we have to look at the current state of affairs. Every generation has historically dealt with its own challenges. In a couple thousand years we’ve moved from hunting-and gathering tribes to a high functioning society with all kinds of ingenious systems (i.e. agriculture) which supports our lifestyle. Especially in the last couple of centuries our species made enormous leaps in all kinds of fields, in a staggering and accelerating pace. Thanks to technology we’re more globally connected than ever. We’ve gained so many insights and knowledge. But, all that will just […]

Já é possível nomear um exoplaneta

Em Portugal, poderá atribuir-se um nome ao planeta extra-solar HD 45652b, um gigante gasoso a 117 anos-luz de nós. A partir desta terça-feira, tem a oportunidade de sugerir um nome para um exoplaneta. Para comemorar o seu 100.º aniversário, a União Astronómica Internacional (IAU, na sigla em inglês) organizou a iniciativa IAU100 Name ExoWorlds (Dê Nome a ExoMundos, em português), em que mais de 70 países terão a possibilidade de dar um nome a um exoplaneta e à sua estrela. Em Portugal, será possível propor nomes até 28 de Outubro no site da iniciativa. Como a IAU é a entidade responsável por atribuir nomes e designações oficiais a corpos celestes, quis incentivar a comunidade internacional a nomear também outros mundos. […]

A Europe for my grandchildren

When I read about the topic for this month’s article, at first I was a bit overwhelmed. What can I as a single person contribute to the European Union? How can I help to preserve the values of this uniting project?  And then, after second thoughts, I realized: yes, even my young generation can do a lot to guarantee that there will also be a Europe for our grandchildren. Let’s start with something that is going to happen this month – the European elections. On the 26th of May we have the chance to vote for the European Parliament and indirectly for our all future. Each one of us can decide which party he or she wants to support with […]

Evolução fez desaparecer músculos

Uma equipa liderada por um cientista português observou, pela primeira vez, estruturas que se começam a desenvolver nos embriões e fetos humanos, mas que desaparecem antes do nosso nascimento. Através de uma técnica de imagens a três dimensões, uma equipa de cientistas dos Estados Unidos e de França espreitou ao pormenor a anatomia de embriões e fetos humanos. Assim, o grupo liderado pelo biólogo português Rui Diogo conseguiu observar músculos que se formam durante o início do nosso desenvolvimento, mas que se perdem antes de nascermos. Essas estruturas desapareceram durante a evolução (na transição dos répteis mamalianos para os mamíferos) há mais de 250 milhões de anos e ainda são visíveis em alguns animais. O trabalho foi publicado esta terça-feira […]

The European project in the future

The future of the European Project depends on our acts now. As a young European citizen who has already participated in projects provided by the European Union, I know that the best way to support the European Project growth is taking part in diversified programmes such as studying abroad, voluntary service or any kinds of internships. These experiences give a new perspective for the future of young people. Mobility does not pose any difficulties anymore because it is a part of the projects mentioned above. Moreover, we are eager to apply for jobs abroad, to travel and stay in touch with all the people we have  met along our way. All the connections between the people and the sense of […]

Freedom is participation!

As european citizens, we all have the responsibility to take care of the EU and contribute to its success, development and improvement.  The EU is not only an International Organization of States, it is a political and economical union based on the common interests, necessities, rights and obligations of all their citizens. It has been created to generate services and to manage and solve common problems of the European States in order to offer better life conditions to the citizens of this geopolitical area.  For this reason, the europeans have inherited the duty to participate actively towards the growth of the EU.  We are required to exercise our rights such as voting in the EU elections, to invest in its […]

Citizen of the EU

I’m proud and happy to be part of EU. Finland joined the EU in 1995 together with Sweden and Austria. It gives me so many opportunities, one of them, which I’m experiencing right now: the European voluntary service. What can I do to help the EU to survive and grow better? An obvious way is voting. It’s important to vote in your own country’s elections, and in EU elections. Decisions and changes made in one country might lead to other countries making the same kind of changes, in better direction. What I really like about EU, is that the borders are open. It makes travelling easy, and motivates me to travel more and see the world. That’s how EU brings […]

What can I do for the EU?

In these times it is so important to be a part of our society and to participate in the European Union. But what can we do for the European Union? At first, we can vote. All citizens of the European Union have a suffrage and we have to use it. Everyone can complain again about the politic of the EU but you can be an active part of it. And I think that most people in Germany know this. Because the voter turnout was 61,4 % in Germany for the elections to the European Parliament in 2019. And I was surprised that only 10.9% of the German voted for right populists. So, I think we are doing well in Germany. […]
