A Manifesto for Early Career Researchers

A Manifesto for Early Career Researchers

The Manifesto is an outcome of the 4th Gago Conference on European Science Policy, on June 13, 2022, which brought together in Brussels research institutions, policy makers and representatives of early career researchers´ associations. It was organised by the Centre national de la recherche scientifique (France), Ciencia Viva (Portugal) and Initiative for Science in Europe (ISE), an independent platform of European Learned Societies and Research Organizations operating within different disciplines and across sectors.

The Manifesto calls for:

  • Europe-wide monitoring of young researchers’ situation
  • Improving research careers and working conditions in Research Performing Organisations (RPOs), Research and Technology Organisations (RTOs) and in Higher Education Institutions (HEIs).
  • Enhancing research careers in the third sector, including NGOs and governmental organisations.
  • Involving national funding agencies in cooperation with the European Commission.
