Petition for European Researchers  "They have chosen ignorance"

Scientists from different European countries describe in this letter
that, despite marked heterogeneity in the situation of scientific
research in their respective countries, there are strong similarities
in the destructive policies being followed. This critical analysis,
highlighted in Nature and simultaneously published in a number of
newspapers across Europe, is a wake-up call to policy makers to
correct their course, and to researchers and citizens to defend the
essential role of science in society. This letter can be signed here.

The national policymakers of an increasing number of Member States,
along with European leaders, have completely lost touch with the
reality of research.
