Endorse the Bratislava Declaration of Young Researchers

614 Signatures Goal: 1,000

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.

You can find the full text of the declaration by clicking here. Please help support young researchers, in Europe and worldwide, by endorsing the Bratislava Declaration of Young Researchers. With your help, we can advocate for concrete actions by policymakers, at national and European level, to help realise those aspirations.

    I completely agree with the declaration. As being a PhD candidate, the system seems infertile for young researcher to me. The time pressure is high withe limited financial security. If it doesn't change, I am afraid this sector will loose bright and young mind. Mind that can make a sustainable impact to the world.

    As a young researcher, this petition is embarrassing. It will have zero impact and produce more hostility towards your group. How do you simultaneously promote the message that "great ideas and ability are divorced of age, gender, or nationality" while actively giving more advantage to specific genders like women? These things are exactly opposite. Clearly no one here knows what a contradiction is.
