BRUSSELS - A joint policy seminar held in Brussels on 25 September focused on the ET2020 agenda and its new approaches towards social inclusion and (higher) education in relation to the SiS Catalyst project and European policy-making.

The European Students’ Union (ESU) was invited to discuss subjects such as equity, social cohesion and active citizenship. Questions such as why the voices of children, youth and students matter in the policy debate were put forth and steps for combating institutional gender inequality discussed. The participants also debated if the higher education system in Europe is fit for a purpose beyond 2020 and how national access plans can be used as tools in that respect.

The event was organised with support of the European Economic and Social Committee at its premises in Brussels, Belgium.

What is SiS Catalyst?

SiS Catalyst is a 4 year, European Commision funded Mobilising Mutual Learning Action Plan. It is an initiative to foster and support ethical, effective and sustainable engagement between children and young people and the social, cultural, political, scientific and educational institutions which make the decisions that will shape their futures.

Enhanced interaction is believed to be beneficial to both children and young people and institutions through exchange of views and improved mutual understanding.

While it seeks to empower children everywhere and influence all kinds of institutions to engage with them, the initiative has a particular focus on strengthening relationships between post-secondary education institutions and the children who, despite ability, currently appear unlikely to enter them.

03:03 on 26 Oct 15 In short, the microservice architectural style is an approach to developing a single application as a suite of small services, each running in its own process and communicating with lightweight mechanisms, often an resource API. These services are built around business capabilities and independently deployable by fully automated deployment machinery. There is a bare minimum of centralized management of these services, which may be written in different programming languages and use different data storage technologies. To start explaining the microservice style it's useful to compare it to the monolithic style: a monolithic application built as a single unit. Enterprise Applications are often built in three main parts: a client-side user interface (consisting of HTML pages and javascript running in a browser on the user's machine) a database (consisting of many tables inserted into a common, and usually relational, database management system), and a server-side application. The server-side application will handle HTTP requests, execute domain logic, retrieve and update data from the database, and select and populate HTML views to be sent to the browser. This server-side application is a monolith - a single logical executable[2]. Any changes to the system involve building and deploying a new version of the server-side application. Such a monolithic server is a natural way to approach building such a system. All your logic for handling a request runs in a single process, allowing you to use the basic features of your language to divide up the application into classes, functions, and namespaces. With some care, you can run and test the application on a developer's laptop, and use a deployment pipeline to ensure that changes are properly tested and deployed into production. You can horizontally scale the monolith by running many instances behind a load-balancer. Monolithic applications can be successful, but increasingly people are feeling frustrations with them - especially as more applications are being deployed to the cloud . Change cycles are tied together - a change made to a small part of the application, requires the entire monolith to be rebuilt and deployed. Over time it's often hard to keep a good modular structure, making it harder to keep changes that ought to only affect one module within that module. Scaling requires scaling of the entire application rather than parts of it that require greater resource.
