Guest of Honour: a senior speaker confirmed from HEFCE This seminar will discuss the future shape of the REF (Research Excellence Framework) ahead of its next cycle in 2021, and will be an opportunity to discuss proposals for the design of the next REF in the closing stages of HEFCE’s consultation. The conference follows the independent review of the REF which called for a broadening of the definition of impact, and for all active research staff in an institution to be submitted as part of the REF process, ending the portability of research outputs if an academic changes institution.

Today’s European Union (EU) is being confronted with both economic and political challenges. The economic challenges are associated with the post-crisis recovery, while the political challenges stem from the rise of nationalism which has recently hit the EU. Against this background, the Centre for European Studies within Alexandru Ioan Cuza University, is organizing the sixth edition of EURINT, which will focus on the resilience capacity of the EU to react to these challenges.

The EuroNanoForum biannual conference, now in its 8th edition, has grown since 2003 into the most significant European forum in its field for scientists, industrialists and policy makers. ENF2017 is orginised under the auspices of the Maltese Presidency of the European Union. EuroNanoForum 2017 will focus on how nano and materials technologies can strengthen competitiveness across all European industries. The discussion will also extend to framework conditions such as education, standards, regulations, IPR and safety issues, as well as entrepreneurship and industrial policy. [read more]
Flow Cytometry is one of the most powerful single cell analysis methods used throughout the life sciences and medicine. Utilising Flow Cytometry we can identify and quantify different from heterogeneous samples, analyse the corresponding state of proliferation or simply detect the expression of fluorescent reporters. Improvements in assay technology are now enabling scientist to detect mRNAs in cells using flow cytometry. We will cover the theory of Flow Cytometry and corroborate this information intensively with the practical issues of the most frequent assays as part of our practical course curriculum. [read more]
Faster supercomputers demand ever smaller-scale microstructures if they are to remain on a rising performance curve. Yet as transistors shrink to the nanometre scale, so power densities and temperatures rise – and the materials they are made of can only take so much before breaking down. [read more]
