As a human endeavour for common good, scientific and scholarly research plays a special role in our European Union – one that has the ability to transform people and society. The passion, ideas and curiosity that young people bring to research sustain it. This declaration – written by young researchers – calls on Member States and the European Commission (EC) to recognise the special role that young researchers play and aspires to better enable them: great ideas and ability are divorced of age, gender, or nationality.
- We aspire to enable great people to realise their ideas to understand and improve the world.
- We aspire to sustainable and transparent career trajectories.
- We aspire to a diverse, collaborative, inter-disciplinary, open, and ethical research environment.
- We aspire to a healthy work-life balance.
