Endorse the Bratislava Declaration of Young Researchers
As a human endeavour for common good, scientific and scholarly research plays a special role – one that has the ability to transform people and society. The passion, ideas and curiosity that young people bring to research sustain it. This declaration – written by young researchers of different nationalities, fields of research and career stages – calls on politicians to recognise the special role that young researchers play and to better enable them, following the principle that great ideas and ability are divorced of age, gender, or nationality.
The declaration is centred around the following aspirations:
1. We aspire to enable great people to realise their ideas to understand and improve the world.
2. We aspire to sustainable and transparent career trajectories.
3. We aspire to a diverse, collaborative, inter-disciplinary, open, and ethical research environment.
4. We aspire
to a healthy work-life balance.

With your help, we can advocate for concrete actions by policymakers, at national and European level, to help realise those aspirations.
