The voices behind youth unemployment

03.07.2013
A Student network group of Chemnitz University of Technology is pioneering a European Project on “Reenergizing European Society and Youth unemployment” in cooperation with the New Club of Paris

Prof. Peter Pawlowsky and Aylin Gözalan at the Chemnitz University of Technology have launched in cooperation with the New Club of Paris a project called “Re-Energizing Europe” which deals with social innovation in Europe and the employment chances of the young generation.

The first results of this student initiative (video interviews; facebook site) were presented at the NCP Luxembourg winter meeting in February 2013 and in June 2013 at the IC 9 World Bank conference in Paris.

The basic assumption of the project is that the European cohorts from the 60s on were brought up in the belief that education and knowledge are the most important resources for development, advancement and personal realization in life. This education promise was part of a generational and societal contract involving economic prosperity and future perspectives.
With the deep economic crisis, especially in southern Europe this educational contract is violated dramatically. In Southern Europe large parts of the younger generation with high education and good qualifications are without a chance and are considered as a „lost generation“. This is scandalous not only because of the individual destinies but also because of the tremendous waste of Human Capital and motivational energy.

The New Club of Paris (NCP) which is a global, impartial and neutral organization devoted to subjects of the knowledge society requests the innovation of a new generation contract. On occasion of the conference called in by Chancellor Angela Merkel to Berlin on July 3rd on the subject of youth unemployment in Europe this international “Think Club” raises its concerns. The New Club of Paris is convinced, that the so far valid “generation contract” has been inversed considering the fact, that more and more elder have to finance the younger with increasingly no income. The Club claims, that a new generation contract must be found.

The New Club of Paris pleads that beyond the results to be achieved at the Chancellor’s office in Berlin for immediate action, also some fundamental projects need to be started with the aim to identify and implement new rules for establishing a much more innovative social and educational policy in Europe. For this purpose the Club has drafted a discussion paper on the subjects under discussion in Berlin suggesting up to six elaboration projects, the specifications can be downloaded from http://www.new-club-of-paris.org/Generation-Paper-of-NCP (docx file format)

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...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
