ICoRSA joins the Initiative for Science in Europe (ISE)

ISE welcomes the International Consortium of Research Staff Organisations (ICoRSA) as a new member. ISE represents learned societies and research organisations. Today, it acts as a powerful advocate for European researchers, speaking up on many issues related to European research and innovation policies, such as the new European Research Area, Horizon Europe, Open Science, researchers’ careers, widening participation, public-private partnerships etc. Over the past few years, ISE has become a valued interlocutor for the European Commission and other EU bodies.

ICoRSA aligns with the values of ISE and sees science as a public good. ICoRSA is looking forward to being involved in the activities of ISE, particularly those on advocating in the fields of precarity, research assessment and open science. ICoRSA values the new membership of ISE for the opportunity to enhance joint initiatives and establish a wider impact in the research community in Europe.

Both ISE and ICoRSA will also benefit from mutual learning and the exchange of good practices within the network.
