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.

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
