Science Europe President Marc Schiltz stresses to Research Professional in the context of the Bonn declaration that “academic freedom is of utmost importance for democratic societies to continue building Europe’s resilience.”
The Freedom of Scientific Research – A Key Principle of the Success and Sustainability of the European Research Area
Science Europe welcomes the adoption of the Bonn Declaration on ‘Freedom of Scientific Research’ at today’s Ministerial Conference on the European Research Area (ERA) in Bonn.
In its response to the European Data Protection Board (EDPB) Science Europe welcomes the detailed guidance on identifying whether controllership is joint or separate within a given collaboration and identifying an appropriate legal form to establish an agreement. However further clarification through the EDPB Guidelines would be helpful for public research organisations.
My wish is that this will provide a positive message to the young girls who would like to follow the path of science, and to show them that women in science can also have an impact through the research that they are performing.
“The negotiations are going to be tough,” highlights Lidia Borrell-Damián, Science Europe Secretary General, to Research Professional in an article on the 2021-27 EU budget.
