s. Under the motto "Innovation.Explained" the magazine sets out not only to present relevant, timely, and accurate accounts of research and innovation, but also to stimulate discussion. The print-only magazine will be published four times a year in French and German as well as in English.

The leaders of all four EuroTech Universities Presidents Anders Overgaard Bjarklev (DTU), Patrick Aebischer (EPFL), and Wolfgang A. Herrmann (TUM) and Rector Magnificus Hans van Duijn (TU/e) will take part in the launch event. The keynote talk, focusing on communicating science across boundaries of all kinds, will be given by Dr. Alan I. Leshner, CEO of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and executive publisher of the journal Science.

What to make of MOOCs?

Once-dominant companies across a range of industries have experienced the destructive power of disruptive innovations. The advent of Massive Open Online Courses or MOOCs is sometimes portrayed as posing a similar threat in higher education, yet a number of leading universities have embraced it as an opportunity. EPFL in particular has been a pioneer in producing some of Europe's first MOOCs, and the EuroTech Universities are collaborating to develop a portfolio of MOOCs in key domains of science and technology.

An ESOF scientific workshop on MOOCs, organized by the EuroTech Universities Alliance, will take place in the Carlsberg Museum on 24 June at 9 a.m.

This session brings together four leaders who can survey the scene from complementary vantage points. EPFL President Patrick Aebischer was one of the first university chiefs in Europe to recognize the significance of MOOCs. Xavier Prats-Monn, Deputy Director-General for Education and Culture at the European Commission since 2011, will assume the post of Director-General beginning this August. Joining them are two key figures engaged with bringing MOOCs to the widest possible audience: Johan
