Position paper available in English

vrijdag 18 oktober 2013

Science has to change. That is the firm believe of the initiators of Science in Transition.

Publication pressure; short-term risk-averse research funding; the lack of adequate quality controls; the overvaluation of research compared to education at universities; very limited democratic control over research funds. It all adds up to an unsustainable situation and suggests the whole system needs to change.

The position paper analyzes these problems and provides starting points for debate. At the Science in Transition conference on November 7 & 8 in Amsterdam the position paper will be discussed. Hopefully, the discussion will provide suggestions as to where solutions might be found.
