As reaction to the interview with the Hungarian Minister for Innovation and Technology László Palkovics in the current issue of the German newspaper DIE ZEIT, the Alliance of Science Organisations in Germany appeals to the Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán. In a letter adressed to DIE ZEIT they remind him in advance of the planned reform concerning the Hungarian Academy of Sciences on „the government’s duty to enable and promote science through the provision of human, financial and organisational resources.“ DAAD President Prof. Margret Wintermantel supports this appeal with her signature.
