Cet article présente le compte rendu d'un atelier portant sur les entretiens de stages dans l'enseignement. Lors de l'atelier, les participants étaient invités à analyser des extraits d'entretiens entre un futur enseignant, son maitre de stage et son formateur. La discussion collective a permis ensuite de mettre en exergue des éléments potentiellement porteurs et facilitateurs dans ces situations d'entretiens. [less ▲]

EIT Raw Materials has the mission to reinforce Europe’s innovation capacity by preparing the entrepreneurs and innovators of tomorrow. By fully integrating the three sides of the knowledge triangle (education, research and industry), the EIT Raw Materials aims at boosting the innovation process: from idea to product; from lab to market and from student to entrepreneur. A key mission of the EIT Raw Materials is to educate young professionals and specifically engineers and scientists by breaking the barriers of classical disciplines. The so-called T-shaped professional will have a strong entrepreneurial mindset and combine an in depth knowledge of his own discipline with a sound understanding of the challenges appearing along the whole raw materials value chain, such as exploration, extraction and processing of primary resources, recycling of secondary resources and substitution of critical and toxic materials. It is essential that these T-shaped professionals understand their role within the value chain as actors of a more circular economy. Every educational activity organized under the umbrella of the EIT Raw Materials (RM) Academy will therefore make sure to involve all stakeholders of the raw materials value chain and to contribute to raising awareness with respect to the societal function of raw materials and the related supply and availability challenges. To achieve these missions and create a long lasting impact, the RM Academy aims to innovate in terms of teaching, which includes: • The promotion of problem-based learning, self organisation and learning by doing. • The offer of an open learning environment and a series of online courses. • Enabling a high degree of mobility of students and professionals. • Facilitating access to experimental platforms and pilot plants for hands-on training • Adopting a strong multidisciplinary approach (e.g. joint courses across sectors) • Thinking beyond boundaries and systematically exploring and generating new ideas • Transforming innovations into feasible business solutions • Joint curriculum development Critical reflection, peer review processes as well as assessments and collegial discussions under the roof of the EIT Raw Material Academy will be used for continuing quality development of the programs.

Even though the Circular Economy paradigm clearly puts the emphasis on recycling, it is essential to understand that we will still need for decades to explore and find resources in the earth crust. Mining is vital to feed the loop and make sure enough metals and minerals are made available to society. But, mining is also one of the most challenging industrial operations when it comes to sustainability objectives. A modern education in mineral resources engineering must build on a strong technical background but give students the opportunity to confront their knowledge with societal needs and responsibilities. The EMerald Erasmus Mundus Master program in Georesources Engineering was set up by four leading European universities with the clear objective to educate responsible professionals who will be actors of sustainable solutions. Therefore, the University of Lorraine, the Lulea Technical University, the TU Bergakademie Freiberg and the University of Liege (coordinator) designed a unique curriculum bridging the traditional gap between natural sciences and engineering, encompassing the valley too often separating the industrial operators from the stakeholders of a mining project. The program offers a unique blend of courses from geology to mineral processing with the aim to familiarize students with the most advanced tools for improving the efficiency of processes. Field trips and industrial visits are a key component of this program as are the non-technical seminars delivered by professionals (lawyers, entrepreneurs, NGO leaders, etc.). Evaluation is often based on written reports, documentary research and short oral presentations to make sure students acquire the indispensable soft skills for efficient communication on environmental and societal issues linked to the impact of extractive activities. Internships and hands-on practices on pilot platforms or laboratory equipments are absolutely essential to reach the highest standards and meet the objectives of the master program. This is costly and can only be maintained thanks to the strong presence of the participating universities in research programs. All four universities are core partners of the EIT Raw Materials knowledge innovation community. This gives an additional leveraging effect when it comes to the education of young entrepreneurs with a strong sustainability mindset. [less ▲]

Inspired by the many folded conformations of the molecular machineries in nature, chemists have been developing the syntheses of artificial folded molecular architectures, namely foldamers. The investigation of these molecules using AFM-based Single Molecule Force Spectrosocopy (SMFS) allows the elucidation of both mechanochemical properties and conformational dynamics on the unimolecular scale in solution. The stepwise synthesis of aromatic oligoamide-based foldamers was designed to produce well-defined helically-folded molecular architectures. A PEO tether was coupled to one end of the foldamer. SMFS pulling experiments on this system yielded specific and reproducible force-extension patterns characteristic of single foldamers. Those patterns were further analyzed to determine unfolding forces and dynamics as well as to propose mechanistics hypotheses of the unfolding process. Several helical foldamers presenting variable lengths were considered. The force values measured for those foldamers are higher than those previously measured in natural biopolymers showing a high stability under a load and a propensity for the development of emergent properties. In addition, the increased stability of these aromatic oligoamide foldamers was confirmed by the observation of almost instantaneous reversibility of the unfolding under load. [less ▲]

In Eurocode 5, nailed joints are designed using the Johansen model extended with the rope effect. The necessary input parameters are embedment strength fh, yield moment My and withdrawal capacity Fax. We can obtain these parameters by using empirical equations based on regression analysis. These equations are given by EC5, for smoothed nails. However, especially for ring shank nails, no consistent rules are given in the current version of Eurocode 5 and the values must be taken from technical documents of the single nails. The aim of this STSM was firstly to develop a database. It was based on 96 reports, mostly about ring shank nails tests, carried out for certification purposes, from 33 producers. Based on this extensive database, regression analyses have been carried out, especially the wire tension strength 𝑓𝑢, the yield moment 𝑀𝑦 and nail tension capacity 𝐹𝑡, all are direct nail proprieties. Potential benefits are more robust design models covering a large range of nails, reduced testing and simplified design equations. [less ▲]

Balans van 2 jaar linkse oppositie in Franstalig België. De politieke puzzel is er een stuk complexer dan in Vlaanderen, met cdH en PS regionaal aan de macht, wat op haar beurt de linkse oppositie tegen de regering-Michel bemoeilijkt. Die oppositie voelt zich, bijna halfweg de legislatuur, erg machteloos tegen de zogenaamde kamikazeregering gedomineerd door drie Vlaamse partijen. [less ▲]

Dans le sillage du texte précédent « Oiseaux blessés. Avec les stagiaires d’Article 23 », ce texte-ci rend compte des spécificités de l’hospitalité que j’ai observées. Ces spécificités s’éclairent à mes yeux des problématiques du don et du contre-don, du « care », des relations à plaisanterie. Enfin, le respect des singularités et des limites individuelles, ainsi que la mise en suspens des rapports concurrentiels constitutifs du monde de travail, dessinent un espace alternatif à l’égard de ce dernier.
