- “Well done to the Euroscientist for its implication in research policy in Europe in this very gloomy time!“
Françoise Barré-Sinoussi, 2008 Nobel Laureate in Physiology or Medicine, for her work in the identification of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) as the cause of AIDS. Director of the Regulation of Retroviral Infections Division (Unité de Régulation des Infections Rétrovirales) at the Institut Pasteur in Paris, France.
- “Your Euroscientist website is great, and I hope it gets some action from the EU.“
- “Euroscientist gave me the opportunity to express my views regarding the severe situation that Greek science is facing in times of deep economic crisis. I strongly feel that Euroscientist needs to be supported by scientists across Europe in order to make our voice heard by policy makers. It is important to prioritize science and education in the political agenda so that we strengthen they character as social commons.“
Varvara Trachana, Assistant Professor of Cell Biology (elected, pending appointment for 2 years), Faculty of Medicine, School of Health Sciences, University of Thessaly, Greece. Member of the steering committee of the Initiative of non-appointed Faculty Members of Greek Universities. Co-founder and scientific advisor of Open Scholar, a not-for-profit international community-based organisation dedicated to promote open access.
- “Europe is under a profound political crisis. We need more Europe based on science, technology and innovation, to foster rationality and responsibility in order to change the negative trends imposed by political restrictions that are running against the qualified human capital performing in these domains… Euroscientist seems to be a good instrument to join and vehicle scientists wills and needs. Thanks to those who have launched this initiative and wishes for a long life to it.”
- “Come on, Euroscientist !“
- “What seems a particular strength (though it sounds a bit odd to say this) is the absence of focus on the UK and the US; indeed it’s refreshing to have an articulate European perspective on many of the key issues in science policy. It’s good to get a sense of what is happening on the ground around the continent.“
- “In times of crisis, when research is an afterthought and indiscriminate austerity measures are undermining R&D activities in several EU countries, Euroscientist can be your voice to help reverse this short-sighted policy.”
Amaya Moro-Martin, Ramón y Cajal fellow at Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas and spokesperson of the science grassroots Investigación Digna.
- “The Euroscientist deserves being widely known and recognised as a leading voice of knowledgeable and reliable scientific information in Europe.”
Enrico Predazzi, Emeritus Professor of Theoretical Physics and Chairman of the Center Agorà Scienza – The University of Torino, Italy.
- “Because they are facilitating direct communication between scientists and the public and because they are European, the initiatives developed by Euroscience are of great interest. Long live the Euroscientist!”
Jean Jouzel, research Director at the Atomic Energy Centre CEA, in Saclay, France, and former Director of the federative research institute gathering five laboratories studying global climate change in the Paris area, the Institute Pierre Simon Laplace. He is also a member of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
- “I hope Euroscientist will be promoting a decisive participation of scientists in the future of science policy in Europe. I wish you all the best!”
Mariano Gago, Former Minister for Science Portugal.
