An Urgent Message from Friends: Support the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research (HCMR)

Nuestros colegas griegos piden ayuda:

Dear friends and colleagues,

Our government has just recently (2 weeks ago) announced that is planning to privatize HCMR and cut its budget by 30%, due to the economic crisis. We are strongly opposed to this possibility, since the current funding is barely enough to pay ONLY our salaries, and for every 1 euro that we receive from the government, we competitively obtain another 3 from European and International grants/services. These money pays not only our operational costs for carrying out world-class research, but to also pay salaries of a large number of contract-scientists and technicians, contributing significantly to employment!

We, therefore launched a petition (see link below) and ask you to consider your support.

Thank you very much,
