SPECIAL ISSUE: Research Austerity

How well are scientists from Southern Europe weathering cuts?

Austerity has taken its toll on European research, and particularly on scientists from Southern Europe. In this special issue we bring you an analysis of the impact of such conditions on scientists who stayed and on those who were forced to emigrate. We also bring you testimonies of researchers sharing their experience of navigating the troubled waters of recession, when it comes to maintaining a seemingly steady research career path.

We would like to encourage other scientists, including those based beyond Southern Europe,  to share their own experience by emailing their testimony and suggestions on how to improve  on the current situation to the Euroscientist Editor (editor[at]euroscience.org).
