Follow-up on press conference impact COVID-19 on EU researchers: recording, and call for action

On Monday 28th of September, YAE, Eurodoc, and MCAA presented their analyses about the impact of Covid-19 on EU researchers in an online press conference. For who is interested, they posted a recording of this on YouTube. Despite the short notice and only 3 days of promotion, there were 328 live viewers of the conference, among whom quite a few journalists. This indicates that many people share their interest in and concerns on this topic.

Following up on the press conference, researchers are encouraged to write to their local parliament members and government. By showing a massive concern for it, the attention of decision makers can hopefully be attracted. Moreover, you can let others hear your voice at the European level by filling in the Covid-19 impact survey of the YAE.
