Ouvert aux élèves de l'enseignement musical belge et aux écoles du Grand-Duché de Luxembourg, le Concours de piano de Liège que j'ai l'honneur de présider en est à sa 10e édition.
Son but est de découvrir de jeunes talents et de les encourager mais aussi de valoriser les professeurs et les écoles qui les forment.
Depuis 20 ans, tous les belges qui se sont illustrés au Concours Reine Elisabeth étaient lauréats du Concours de Liège.
La finale 2016 se déroulera le 4 juin dans la prestigieuse Salle philharmonique de Liège.
Venez-y nombreux, pour les soutenir et les encourager !

With the TEF, it looks like Britain keeps moving on the wrong track with the management of its higher education. The ranking frenzy, linked with funding, has been devastating and it will get worse.
The wrong principles:
1. Establishing the funding of universities on rankings based on highly disputable criteria;
2. Adding new criteria built on highly subjective perceptions.
It is all about the tempting illusion that one can actually MEASURE the unmeasurable, it's the old unreachable myth that QUALITY would somehow be QUANTIFIABLE...

Open Access to scientific publications is a cause, not just a fantasy. It has a profound democratic impact, it brings knowledge to those who could not afford it. It means also that "junk" literature will no longer be the only one freely available for everyone on the net.
When all published science will be freely accessible (there is still a long way) let's make sure that that not only the wealthiest can afford to publish...
