EuroScience supports the French researchers’ movement ‘Sauvons la Recherche’
Times are difficult for European science. With the possible exception of Nordic countries, public support to research is weakening in most countries of the EC – not to speak about the terrible deterioration of Central and Eastern European research. As a result, European science is loosing ground in several disciplines, in contrast to major efforts by North America, Japan, China and India to develop new areas of research. In the long range, decreasing political interest could prove very damaging for education in Europe, and become a threat to its technological autonomy. Visit the website of Sauvons la Recherche.
