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: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
