Protest against events at German-Israeli Foundation
HRK President Prof Dr Peter-André Alt vehemently turned against the politically motivated rejection of Israeli scientist Yael Amitai during the appointment of replacements for the Scientific Advisory Committee of the German-Israeli Foundation (GIF): "On this occasion, the independence of science is being attacked. We cannot tolerate this." In saying this, Alt is showing support for the protests of the Association of University Heads, Israel (VERA) and numerous scientists. "Germany and Israel need to lay down clear rules for this important bilateral project," says Alt.
