2. Współpraca z Fundacją "Jeden Uniwersytet".

    Działania w ramach współpracy z Fundacją:
  • przygotowania organizacji spotkania studentów z konsorcjum EPICUR w Poznaniu od strony logistycznej, programowej (integracja i animacja czasu wolnego), koordynowania oferty hotelowej, gastronomicznej,
  • organizacja 4-dniowego warsztatu w języku angielskim podczas październikowego spotkania młodych z EPICUR, gdzie studenci z uczelni partnerskich mogliby:
    - wymienić się dobrymi praktykami integrowania studentów w projektach międzynarodowych
    - wskazać atrakcyjne obszary dydaktyczne, polecając je uwadze zespołu Epicura
    - wypracować model Uniwersytetu Europejskiego a przede wszystkim jak Uniwersytet Przyszłości powinien wyglądać i funkcjonować ze studenckiego punktu widzenia

WFPiK – podpisanie listu intencyjnego w celu ustanowienia lektoratu języka polskiego w Salonikach

Od 7 do 10 listopada w Salonikach (Grecja) trwały Dni Polskie organizowane przez Ambasadę RP w Atenach. Przy tej okazji przedstawiciele władz UAM, Uniwersytetu Arystotelesa oraz Ambasady RP w Atenach popisały w piątek, 8 listopada, list intencyjny dotyczący nauczania języka polskiego.

Zajęcia na Uniwersytecie Arystotelesa w Salonikach mają się rozpocząć w październiku 2020 roku. Trzy grupy będą uczyć się języka polskiego od podstaw przez trzy godziny w tygodniu. Zajęcia potrwają dwa semestry.

Dni Polskie były zwieńczeniem obchodów setnej rocznicy nawiązania stosunków dyplomatycznych między Polską a Grecją. W programie znalazły się także m.in.: koncert jazzowy „Moniuszko meets jazz” czy seminarium gospodarcze „Why Poland?”.

Naukowcy z UAM w walce z koronawirusem!

The team of scientists from the Centre for Advanced Technologies (CZT) at Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań, under the leadership of Prof. Jakub Rybka, Deputy Director of the CZT, has undertaken research to produce the necessary components of an immunological test dedicated to the diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2. 

Currently used diagnostic tests enable detection of coronavirus by means of PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction). The result of such a test confirms whether the person being tested is currently infected with the virus. This method is very fast, sensitive and effective. However, it does not answer the question whether the patient has an immunity against the coronavirus that he may have acquired through contact with the pathogen. This is important from the perspective of people who have undergone the disease symptomlessly or have not been properly diagnosed, as well as in relation to medical staff. Persons with anti-coronavirus antibodies are not susceptible to reoccurrence and do not represent a potential source of infection. Therefore, such people can return to a normal life without risking their health and without endangering others. The first non-commercial test to detect the patient's immune response to SARS-CoV-2 was developed by the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York in cooperation with research team of Prof. Florian Krammer, virologist from the University of the Natural Sciences in Vienna, Austria. Thanks to the support of the Rector's authorities of Adam Mickiewicz University and the director of CZT, Prof. Bronisław Marciniak, Centre for Advanced Technologies at Adam Mickiewicz University, together with the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology of the Faculty of Biology at Adam Mickiewicz University (team chaired by Prof. Krzysztof Sobczak) Poznań scientists have taken steps to produce the components of the test, developed by prof. Krammer. The test is based on two viral proteins that bind specifically to relevant antibodies present in the patient's blood. This is a sensitive and specific test, allowing for the testing of a large number of samples in a relatively short time.

    All European University alliances are invited to participate in this webinar on Friday 24 April, from 10.00 to 12.00, to discuss your experience during this crisis, the flexibility of the rules introduced and to consult you on possible upcoming policy developments responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. I have added the agenda to the meetings section on seafile and it is also enclosed with this email. There are no limitations on thenumber of participants per alliance so all partners are encouraged to follow.
    Seafile: EPICUR\Meetings\EACEA_Commission\200424_Webinar
  3. European University alliances and Member States
    Enclosed is a document with feedback on two meetings held last February with the EACEA/EC stakeholders group and ad-hoc working group (consisting of Member States representatives) where the next steps of the European Universities Initiative were discussed. A meeting with Member States is planned in a virtual format in June. For this meeting, only the coordinator (Christelle Roy) and one other representative from the alliance can join the meeting.
  4. Study on student-centred learning and teaching in higher education
    Recently published study: NESET-study on student-centred learning and teaching practices (https://nesetweb.eu/en/news/neset-publishes-a-report-on-student-centred-learning-and-teaching-in-higher-education/), funded by the European Commission (published mid-March 2020). The report suggests a list of 10 mutually reinforcing core elements, all of which should be implemented to have a fully functioning student-centred learning and teaching ecosystem.
