The European Physical Society supports the March For Science

Posted By Administration, Friday 7 April 2017

The European Physical Society (EPS) offers its support to all scientists taking part in the March for Science which will be organised on April 22, 2017 in Washington, DC, as well as in the satellite marches planned in many places in Europe and around the world.

The support of the EPS follows the fundamental principles of the Universality of Science adopted by the International Council for Science (ICSU), under which “… the free and responsible practice of science is fundamental to scientific advancement and human and environmental well-being.” Similar principles have been adopted by the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP). Non-partisan research and sound scientific evidence are important constituents of fact-based policy and decision making. 

The March for Science is an excellent opportunity to recall that a constructive and rational dialog between science and society is an essential contribution to our collective future.
