Petition to protect the EU research budget

Summary: 

The Initiative for Science in Europe (ISE) has launched a petition to support an open letter that has been signed by 42 Nobel Laureates and 5 Fields Medallists.

The discussions at and around the next summit of the European Union heads of states and governments, which is scheduled for 22 and 23 November, will be decisive in determining the EU research budget for the next seven years. Several Member States are demanding severe cuts on the total EU budget and research will have to compete with other policy priorities.
