Future of the Russian Academy of Sciences at stake

The Russian Duma will take up its work on September, 9. It will have to discuss and finally pass a law on a reform of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) that was originally launched by the Russian government without consultations with the scientific community. The RAS plans to adopt a declaration summarizing key requests from the scientists to be presented to the Duma in due time.
Russian colleagues have formulated a petition to the Russian president Putin asking him to make sure that the future law will come in place after a thorough consultation with the scientific community.
