The Fourth Quarterly EURAXESS India Newsletter of the year is out now with the following exciting topics:
Country in Focus: Italy
Four of the ten oldest universities in the world are located in Italy! They are the University of Bologna (1088), the University of Padua (1222), the University ‘Federico II’ of Naples (1224) and the University of Siena (1240). Europe’s first Conservatory is also Italian and was established in Naples in 1808, and the world’s first art academy was founded in Florence by Giorgio Vasari in 1563. Italy’s special and distinctive ability to combine tradition with innovation distinguishes the country.
HOT TOPIC: Safeguarding European R&I, a delicate balancing act
Building guardrails to deal with foreign interference has become a key talking point following publication of the EU’s Global Approach to
Research and Innovation. In this edition of EURAXESS Worldwide newsletter we explore the context, latest developments, and tools
Europe is using to achieve the fine balance between scientific openness and safeguarding strategic interests.
