Attack at European values

I am deeply shocked to hear about the violent act which cost three innocent people’s lives at the Jewish Museum in the city centre of Brussels this afternoon. In my own name and on behalf of the European Commission, I convey my sincere condolences to the families and friends of the victims of this tragic crime.

I strongly condemn that this terrible act seems to have been directed at a religious symbol in the heart of the European capital. This was an attack at European values which we cannot tolerate.

Has the diversity of students in your country changed in the past years?

Reshared post from +European Commission

Has the diversity of students in your country changed in the past years? According to a report published today, not enough countries are using the information they collect on higher education to improve their universities and the opportunities they offer for students.

The report shows that, although many countries collect information about their student populations, data analysis is often not linked to concrete objectives (such as ensuring access of disadvantaged students to higher education), and many countries are unaware if their student population is becoming more diverse (see picture).

Higher education needs to do more to respond to areas of weakness

Do you know where this year’s capitals of culture are?

Hint: one is the capital of the newest Euro member and the cleanest capital city in Europe in 2007, the other is known as the “City of Birches” and one of the New York Times top places to visit this year.
