ISCOMS is the largest biomedical student congress in Europe and is growing every year. It is a leading forum for worldwide research exchange between students in all fields of biomedical sciences. The primary aims of the congress are to offer a venue for student research exchange and to support student research. Therefore, ISCOMS stimulates international cooperation between scientists and students. Moreover, the congress provides a starting point for motivated and talented students to pursue a career in (bio)medical sciences. The programme of the congress includes presentations from students, keynote lectures from esteemed scientists, and interactive workshops. In the letter and poster attached to this e-mail you will find more information regarding our congress.

The 26th edition of ISCOMS will take place from the 3rd until the 7th of June 2019 in the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG), The Netherlands. Last year’s congress was a great success with 959 participants attending from all over the world.  Due to the enthusiastic reactions we received regarding the expansion of the programme with a third congress day, we decided to proceed with this extra congress day. This results in more workshops, more speakers and an extended social programme.

The abstract submission will be open from the 29th of October 2018 till the 7th of February 2019.

Erasmus+ Capacity Building in Higher Education

The Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore (UCSC) participates as a partner in the international project “Transition to University Autonomy in Kazakhstan” (TRUNAK) within the framework of the Erasmus+ Capacity Building in Higher Education (Structural measures project 586205-EPP-1-2017-1-KZ-EPPKA2-CBHE-SP). Coordinator of the project for the UCSC is Prof. Stefania Boccia, with active participation of Dr. Stefania Bruno, Dr. Elena Azzolini and Dr. Vladimir Vukovic. The project coordinator is the Karaganda State Medical University (KSMU), Karaganda, Kazakhstan.

This project seeks to pursue the objectives of enhancing the management, governance and innovation capacities, as well as the internationalization of participating higher education institutions. The project also intends to enhance the capacities of national authorities to modernize their higher education systems by supporting the definition, implementation and monitoring of reform policies. The overarching aim of the project is to transform the Kazakh universities from ministerial control towards decentralized governance by  developing a model of decentralization and support of the structural changes in higher education by transfer of experiences from EU-partner countries. The following activities are planned to serve this purpose: conducting needs analysis, developing a model of university autonomy, defining the desired degree of autonomy, implementing the model in the Partner Country's universities, developing guiding material on university autonomy, forming a consulting group around the results and disseminating them to other Kazakh universities. The UCSC participates as a partner in all Work Packages. The project started on the 15th of October 2017 and will end on the 14th of October 2020 (duration of 36 months).

The TRUNAK project includes 17 partners – participants:

8 Kazakh Partners:

  • Karaganda State Medical University (coordinator of the project)
  • Astana Medical University
  • West Kazakhstan Marat Ospanov State Medical University
  • M.Kozybayev North Kazakhstan State University
  • Karaganda Economic University of Kazpotrebsoyuz
  • Kh.Dosmukhamedov Atyrau State University
  • The Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Kazakhstan
  • The Ministry of Healthcare and Social Development of the Republic of Kazakhstan

7 EU partners:

  • Lund University, Sweden
  • European University Association, Belgium
  • University of Ljubljana, Slovenia
  • Lublin University of Technology, Poland
  • Savonia University of Applied Scienced, Finland
  • Aga Khan University - Institute for the Study of Muslim civilisations, United Kingdom
  • Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Italy

2 Associated partners:

  • KazMSA, Kazakhstan

The project will benefit the target groups and stakeholders through helping them to find a way of decentralizing university governance, using the knowledge gained by performing the project activities. The activities are designed to, by means of interaction with EU experts, allow the transfer of knowledge, and obtain insight and perspective in university autonomy, with help of the expertise and experiences from the experts on EU systems. At European level, the project will contribute to the dissemination of European models of governance of Higher Education Institutions, complementing the Bologna Process in Kazakhstan.

From 13th to 17th November 2017 the Karaganda State Medical University hosted the kick-off meeting in Karaganda, Kazakhstan, during which all project partners met and discussed several issues of relevance to the project. On the second day of the kick-off meeting Dr. Azzolini and Dr. Vukovic presented the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore (History; Facts & Figures: students, staff, researchers, study programs, graduates, ; Governance and Organization; Financial management; Academic Management, existing rules/regulations about educational programs and research; Faculty recruitment and admission of students, existing rules; International research projects) to other partners and further discussed the role and contribution of the UCSC to the project and also the expectations from the TRUNAK project.

 Participation of the UCSC as an EU-partner in this project will enable to share the knowledge and experience about the Italian perspective of University autonomy and further support the changes in higher education in Kazakhstan.
