“Science Is International”

The DFG and other German science organisations have issued a joint statement criticizing US President Trump’s executive order on immigration. The order represents “an act of aggression against the fundament values of science” and gravely impairs the international exchange that is of such critical importance for scientific collaboration. The organisations are calling on the United States government to repeal the order immediately.
