I recently blogged about the UK’s Eng and Phys. Sci Res. Council (EPSRC)’ s retrograde policy to blacklist any scientist who had three grants rejected.
There is now a petition – ON THE PRIMEMINISTERS SITE – allowing scientists to petition against this and I have signed it
“You are now signed up to this petition. Thank you.
For news about the Prime Minister’s work and agenda, and other features including films, interviews, a virtual tour and history of No.10, visit the main Downing Street homepage
If you’d like to tell your friends about this petition, its permanent web address is: http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/UKScience/”
PMR: I’m impressed that the government has built this site – there is a section of the cabinet office which is actively promoting e-government and this is an excellent idea.
UK SCIENTISTS PLEASE VOTE AND PLEASE TELL YOUR COLLEAGUES TO VOTE AND SPREAD THE WORD.
