Worldwide March for Science on 22nd April 2017



The GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung GmbH, Member of the Helmholtz Association, and the FAIR - Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research GmbH jointly support the worldwide initiative “March for Science” on April 22nd, 2017.

All scientists and active, involved citizens are called upon to speak up for their conviction that facts established through scientific methods are indispensable for any public dialogue.

For this purpose, freedom of science, research and teaching as well as freedom of speech and tolerance towards those whose opinions are different need to be preserved as precious assets of our enlightened society. This also includes the free exchange between scientists of different nations.

We therefore would like to encourage you to participate in the “March for Science Event” in Frankfurt on 22nd April 2017 (or in a parallel event organized by the “March for Science Event” initiative).

Please follow this link to watch the speech of Helmholtz President Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Otmar Wiestler on YouTube.
