in: 11 the future of Education & Learning

The dawn of the information society has created a need for a successful combination of life-long learning, entrepreneurial behavior and self-development. Organizations will have to be redefined as generic learning environments for individuals. This emerging perspective calls for new learning models and new learning infrastructures, examples of which are being developed at the University of Amsterdam.

The model described in this article involves three types of participants in the learning process and three methods of learning. The integrating concept is called Learning by Sharing. The participants are: business individuals, teachers/researchers and students. The three methods of learning are: learning by experimenting, learning by investigating, and learning through practice.

Media coverage of science in the EU varies in both quality and quantity and from country to country. Developments in the life sciences have, in general, made the headlines only if associated with a ‘breakthrough’ or a controversy. When this happens, the press quickly moves away from purely informative coverage to foster instead a widespread debate on possible implications and risks of the technology under scrutiny, and this can be very confusing for the public. Typical results of such confusing information are the misinformation, suspicion and hostility that surround the introduction of innovative products based on recombinant DNA technology, particularly GM foods and crops; although for the development of new medical drugs and treatments, public views are more favourable – as documented by the Eurobarometer surveys.more....

Population and community ecology and ecosystem ecology provide two different perspectives on ecological systems, their structure, their functioning, their dynamics and their evolution. While population and community ecology takes as its starting point the population and its interactions with other populations, ecosystem ecology is mainly concerned with the flows of matter and energy in the overall system composed of biological organisms and their abiotic environment.more....

Lithographic tools and techniques can be expected to contribute to nanotechnological development, especially in the area of nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS) and for provision of the larger-scale supporting and connecting structures for other developments, such as molecular electronics and lab-on-a-chip systems. Different approaches will be briefly described in this white paper.more....

On 21 November 2001, the Commission adopted a Communication on Making a European Area of Lifelong Learning a Reality. This Communication was jointly presented by Commissioners Reding and Diamantopoulou as a response to the mandate from the Feira European Council "to identify coherent strategies and practical measures with a view to fostering lifelong learning for all". In doing so, it makes an important contribution to achieving the strategic goal set at Lisbon for Europe to become the most competitive and dynamic knowledge-based society in the world.

in: 27 Electronic Identity

The Identity Metasystem is an interoperable architecture for digital identity that assumes people will have several digital identities based on multiple underlying technologies, implementations, and providers. Using this approach, customers will be able to continue to use their existing identity infrastructure investments, choose the identity technology that works best for them, and more easily migrate from old technologies to new technologies without sacrificing interoperability with others. This paper introduces the principles behind this approach in "The Laws of Identity"; it presents an open and interoperable architecture for building the metasystem, and it describes Microsoft's plans to participate in the identity metasystem.

I am a serious movie fan, and so the other night I had a bizarre dream: I was catapulted into the opening scene of my own sequel of ‘Mission: Impossible’, and the mission – should I chose to accept it - was to rebuild the music business from scratch. The industry we know it was “Gone with the Wind”, and it was my job to reassemble it.
Despite the distinct megalomania flavor (which, you have to admit, is a distinct component of every ‘Mission: Impossible’), this idea resonated nicely in a “Titanic” kind-of- way and I agreed to accept the mission. The next morning I awoke and felt that I had to try to deliver what I promised, dream or not. Yes, I know “What Lies Beneath” but… ‘A few good men’ must do it.
So, here is my 10-step program for the Impossible Mission of restructuring the music business, ‘Men in Black’ notwithstanding.

in: 15 the future of Culture & Religion

Research on Muslim communities in Europe has recently shifted focus from labor and social policy concerns to issues of 'religion' and 'culture'. In particular, there has been a growing interest in the possible emergence of a specifically 'European Islam'. Through examining the religious attitudes and practices of Muslim girls in Belgium, the author investigates the viability of a 'European Islam' and in so doing poses questions about the nature of secularisation, free will and individualisation of religious practice and belief. more....
