Norwegian anti-Bullying program recommended by the European Union to countries in Latin-America

07.11.2006
The anti-bullying program Zero, developed by researchers at the Centre for Behavioural Research at the University of Stavanger, Norway, is being recommended as one out of five European programs to be used in schools in Latin-America.

The Zero-program is the only program from Norway to be recommended, alongside programs from Spain, Italy and some international projects.

The Zero-program was recommended to the Latin-American countries during a conference in Cartagens de Indias in Columbia in june. The conference was held by the international project Eurosocial, led by France, Spain and Italy on behalf of the European Union. The project seeks to exchange knowledge on different topics between EU and 18 countries in Latin-America.

- The Governments in Latin-America who attended the conference was very attracted to the Zero-program, says Rosario Ortega Ruiz, professor and head of Department of Education at the University of Cordoba in Spain.

Ortega Ruiz has contributed to the program-recommendations published in the report "Management of the Educative Centres in Violence Contexts: Prevention, Attention and Pacific Resolution of the Conflict”.

- We want to recommend good examples for countries to follow. Prevention and dealing with the problem of bullying has been important factors, she says.

Professor Erling Roland, director at the Centre for Behavioural Reserach at the University of Stavanger, Norway, is very pleased with the recommendation of the Zero-program.

- If our Zero-program can be used by schools in the spanish spoken countries in Latin-America, we are ready to contribute. We look forward to any cooperation across continent, and are happy that the Zero-program is considered as one of the best programs to fight bullying in schools, says Roland.

The 18 countries taking part in the international project EurosociAL are Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Cuba, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay og Venezuela.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
