Young Academies oppose funding cuts to Horizon Europe
The GYA, together with 18 European and associated young academies, has signed an open letter to the Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) and national governments to raise concerns over cuts to Horizon Europe funding from 2021 onwards. The letter, whose drafting was led by the Polish Young Academy, urges MEPs and national governments to act against the proposed cuts in the budget of Horizon Europe in 2021-2027, which were suggested by the European Council in July 2020. Funding should be restored to at least the initially agreed €94.4bn and funding for Pillar 1 initiatives prioritised.

Mark your calendars now and return July 2021 for the next round.

Issue 8 explores climate change and how it can be ameliorated. Also: how social media can hold governments and political parties accountable. Most importantly, though: a warm welcome to 40 new GYA members!
