Interfaculty Lunch: 40 Propositions on Science

Wednesday 18 November 2020
Link to the platform will be sent before the event
Young Academy Leiden once again organises an interfaculty online 'lunch' meeting, this time to discuss the 40 Propositions on Science.
This summer, Rens Bod (University of Amsterdam), Remco Breuker (Leiden University), and Ingrid Robeyns (Utrecht University) published a manifesto with 40 propositions on restructuring universities in the Netherlands.
In this online meeting, we will have an interview on the manifesto with Remco Breuker, followed by Q&A. To give you a flavour, this manifesto includes propositions such as: "'Hogescholen' deserve the same status as universities"; "Having too many temporary contracts leads to exploitation of early-career scholars"; and "Academic funding should let go of the fictive distinction between alfa, b├Ęta and gamma." (our translation)
We are looking forward to a fruitful discussion! If you want to take part in this event, please register here
