Submissions now admitted for Council's 2019 research grant

beca-investigacio---2019-xarxe1The Formentera Council's culture and patrimony department launched a call for applications for a six thousand euro grant to promote research. Research proposals must involve the arts, humanities or social sciences and be related to local issues.

Application guidelines are already available on the website of the BOIB regional gazette, and interested researchers have until June 13 to submit proposals. At the close of submissions, a review committee made up of several individuals will evaluate projects based on scientific interest, coherency, methodology and each researchers' professional experience. The proposed research must be conducted within 12 months of the announcement of the winner.

Last year prize money went to a project titled “The cultural landscape of Formentera. Study of stone extraction and use through history” (Paisaje cultural de Formentera. Estudio de las dinámicas de explotación y uso de la piedra a lo largo de la historia).

Officials sit down to negotiate new technical training programmes

foto-reunio---mn-fp1CiF first councillor Jaume Ferrer was joined by Susana Labrador, the administration's deputy first councillor and education and culture chief, together with two Govern balear officials—education and universities minister Martí March and the director general of technical schools and teacher training, Maria Alorda—in inaugurating the committee charged with negotiating new professional development modules for islanders and how best to support them.

The idea is that the committee—or “Mesa de Negociació”, which welcomed other attendees too, such as voices from high school IES Marc Ferrer and the island's social and economic sectors—was to chart the course of continuing education on Formentera. Councillor Labrador hailed the committee's formation, pointing out that “professional development, together with improved conditions for local students who study on Eivissa and must commute to class, is at the centre of a longstanding appeal by islanders”. The Mesa's next gathering is planned for September.

Sant Ferran school
Minister March announced the construction contracts for the Sant Ferran nursery and primary school rebuild would be signed this Wednesday, and primed islanders for the “imminent start” of work. It is hoped that children will be able to put the new buildings to test for the 2020-2021 academic calendar.

Funding for the €6.9-million project to build the escola and escoleta will be split between the Balearic ministry of education and the Formentera Council. The Palma ministry has promised to put up €5.8 million for the early-learning and primary schools and the Formentera administration will pay another one million for the escoleta.
