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: Electron highway inside crystal

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.

Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
