Horizon Europe-Petition

The Initiative for Science in Europe (ISE), supported by the EASSH, has launched a campaign to ask governments of Member States to invest more in Education, Research, and Innovation. 
With tomorrows EU Council meeting the budget discussion regarding the next 7-year framework program (Horizon Europe) is coming to a close. Unfortunately, a much lower investment than hoped for looks highly probable. The initial allocation of 120B EUR is about to be reduced to only 80B EUR. Therefore, in order to avoid that the contribution to Research and Education will shrink to merely 1% of the Gross National Income of EU Member States, they call for your support!
Find the petition here: https://initiative-se.eu/he-petition/
And please consider sharing it to your contacts!
