David Gerard writes "Elsevier, in final desperation mode, is going after authors sharing their own papers online. Academia.edu has told several researchers that Elsevier 'is currently upping the ante in its opposition to academics sharing their own papers online.' This is the sounds of a boycott bit...

Tout comprendre des ateliers (2013) du GRE Liège !
Bref, le GRE Liège veut diversifier et propulser l'activité économique de Liège.
Des piliers essentiels sont identifiés et concentrent nos efforts : audiovisuel, spatial, bio et nano technologies, exportations, innovations dans la construction, miniaturisation, reconversion de friches industrielles pour de l'agroalimentaire, recherches autour du génome et des protéines, applications pharmaceutiques, etc.
Voici quelques exemples. D'autres encore dans cette vidéo !

"Nelson Mandela, then President of the Republic of South Africa, received the Doctor Honoris Causa Award of the University of Liege in 1998.

ULg offered to handle him this award in November that year, in the framework of an event commemorating the 150th anniversary of the slavery abolition in France and the 50th anniversary of the universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Unfortunately, the agenda and the already fragile health of President Mandela did not allow him to undertake this long travel to Europe.

Academic authorities explained their motivations:
Search for Knowledge cannot accommodate spirit or body constraints.
Academics duty is to denounce them and to oppose to them. Authoritarian regimes have always had the temptation to muzzle universities, but we also note that it is in these regimes that will often raise the first sources of resistance.
Numerous academics have paid, and still pay, in their flesh the price of this resistance.

Nelson Mandela fight - he spent 28 years in South-African prisons before leading his party (ANC, African National Congress) to the victory in 1994 - was therefore emblematic for the University."

Peter Higgs: I wouldn't be productive enough for today's academic system
Physicist doubts work like Higgs boson identification achievable now as academics are expected to 'keep churning out papers'

L’anévrisme de l’aorte abdominale (#AAA) est une pathologie fréquente concernant 4 % de la population âgée de plus de 65 ans. Sa dangerosité, liée à sa rupture,  est actuellement estimée en fonction de son diamètre, alors que pourtant de gros anévrismes peuvent ne jamais se rompre et que, inversement, il n’est pas rare d’assister à la rupture d’anévrismes de petite taille. Des équipes du CHU (Service de Chirurgie cardio-vasculaire, Service de Médecine Nucléaire) et de l’Université de Liège (Laboratoire de Biologie des Tissus Conjonctifs, GIGA)  sont sur la piste de marqueurs prédictifs de l’instabilité des anévrismes abdominaux. http://reflexions.ulg.ac.be/PETCTanevrisme
