Appello contro i tagli alla ricerca nel Regno Unito

|

Vi segnaliamo questa importante iniziativa:

The Science is Vital campaign is running a petition against cuts to
university science funding, supported by Sir Patrick Moore and a slew
of FRS’s. Investment in scientific research yields outsize returns in
future economic growth, yet the UK spends the least on science among
most major industrial nations and plans further deep cuts. Meanwhile,
China is increasing science funding by 25%, alongside the US, Germany,
and France.

The signatories have mainly been from Imperial and UCL so far, not
many from Cambridge yet – get people in your departments to sign!

To sign: “We the undersigned petition the Government to recognize that
science is vital and to not reduce science funding.”
