Today's spotlight is on K.U. Leuven University in Belgium.
As a university, K.U.Leuven distinguishes itself from other research centres by its autonomous statement of problems, by the disinterested character of its fundamental research, by its focus on education and by the fact that within its walls almost all academic disciplines are represented. In a number of fields (such as biotechnology, environment, medical research, European integration and diversity, arts and nanotechnology) the university aspires to a place among the centres of excellence in Europe and in the world.
As part of its 50th Anniversary Celebrations, OECD (Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development) has launched a competition for young people around the world to showcase their talent and create a short video describing their vision of 'Progress'.
Ecuadorian government is quietly making a bold attempt to provide universal
healthcare to its culturally and geographically diverse population. Are they
succeeding? You be the judge as you are given unprecedented access to key
aspects of the healthcare system in both the capital of Quito as well as rural
areas of costal Ecuador.
