These and other questions will be posed and discussed in a panel on “The Neuroscience of Gender” at the German Center for Research and Innovation (GCRI) in New York (Monday, June 17, 6.30 – 8.30pm).

Attracting more students and researchers from non-EU countries to Europe

April 5th, 2013 | by

Those following the current global news in the world of higher education might have heard or read about it already: Last week the European Commission hit the headlines with a proposal to make it easier for students and researchers from non-European Union countries to enter and stay in EU member states. Plans for new legislation aim to ease current obstacles for international students and researchers, such as lenghty visa application procedures, limited access to  labour markets or restrictions in academic mobility within the EU. Read more about the EC proposal in the latest issue of University World News – New rules to attract non-EU students, researchers and the official press release of the EC.

At a press conference (see video below) last week featuring two non-EU students sharing their experience in Europe, Cecilia Malmström, member of the EC in charge of Home Affairs, also explained the importance of these reforms with regard to the economic future of the EU.
