HRK President supports March for Science
HRK President Horst Hippler has expressed his support for the March for Science again this year. “As a researcher and as a representative of the universities, I will be participating with great conviction. I would like to express my respect and gratitude to the organisers of this true grass-roots movement for their commitment,” Hippler said. He went on to say, “The freedom of science, research and teaching must be actively championed and fought for again and again. In many regions of the world, it is perpetually curtailed or endangered. However, the fact that it is also being attacked in a number of democratically constituted states, that anti-science tendencies seem to be on the rise even in Germany, especially concerns us.
