The Stick to Science campaign needs EU researchers to speak up, says Vivienne Stern
The Stick to Science campaign, urging an end to delay to UK and Swiss participation in Horizon Europe, launched on 8 February. Since then, it has gathered more than 3,500 signatories, including 12 Nobel Prize winners, three Fields Medallists and over 250 leaders of universities, research institutes, funding agencies and major associations.
Across Europe, 170 organisations have joined the campaign, and it has reached more than 3.5 million people via Twitter. It is, as the Nobel-winning astronomer Didier Queloz of the University of Cambridge said in a recent article in the Financial Times, a “collective howl of protest issued by the scientific leadership of Europe”.
