YERUN Reflection Paper on The World Higher Education after COVID-19


After four months since the beginning of lockdowns across Europe due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, on Monday 6 July YERUN has published a Reflection Paper on The World of Higher Education after COVID-19. The paper is structured in three parts: the first, "What has changed so far", is an overview of the challenges that we have taken stock of across our networks and the solutions identified so far by our members; the second part, "What is coming next" explores three possible post-COVID-19 horizons; the third and last part, "What can we gain", identifies those opportunities coming from this challenging situation that we should not miss.

    “The best place in the world for quantum sensing“ Academic globetrotter starts MSCA fellowship at Ulm University

    Dr. Robert Cernansky is the future Marie Skłodowska-Curie-fellow at Ulm University. The physicist from Slovakia decided to apply for a global Marie Skłodowska-Curie-Action (MSCA) to work with “great scientific minds“ in highly diverse research groups. The 30-year-old scientist chose Ulm University as his European guest institution because he admires the work of Professor Fedor Jelezko. The director of Ulm University’s Institute of Quantum optics was among the first scientists to develop quantum magnetic sensors based on point defects in artificial diamonds. “Thus, Ulm University is the best place in the world for me to learn about quantum sensing“, explains Robert Cernansky.
