  • YERUN RMA 2019 - Meet Cornelia Adriana Baciu

    The research area during the YERUN Research Mobility Award was in peace, security and innovation, and more specifically, in a context of increasing great power competition and unstable international security order, how new cooperative strategies in this domain could look like in the future. During the research visit at the University of Southern Denmark (SDU) I worked with researchers from the Centre of War Studies (CWS), under the coordination of Professor Sten Rynning, who hosted me for one week in April-May 2019.

    YERUN RMA 2019 - Meet Paula Rautionaho

    I am very happy about the visit on all accounts. My host and other members of staff were very accommodating and took very good care of me. During the visit, I met with many members of the department staff and the research group Grammar and Pragmatics. I gave two lectures on the use of English in Finland and in the European context, both of which were met positively by the students, who showed interest by asking questions and reflecting on their own use of English, and the use of English in Belgium.

    YERUN RMA 2019 - Meet Gerardo Pulido Reyes

    Thanks to the YERUN mobility award, I was able to visit Dr. Susana Cristobal at Linköping University (Sweden). She is an impressive and creative scientist with an outstanding career. My visit to her lab allowed me, first of all, to perceive how it is to manage a top research group in the field of environmental proteomics; and, secondly, to know a remarkable scientist and learn from the invaluable knowledge that she has acquired through her life and scientific experiences.
