March for Science - Now What?

Dr. Dorothea Rüland, General Secretary of DAAD was interviewed by the Deutschlandfunk about her take on the March for Science which took place in many cities around the world last weekend. In Berlin alone, 10,000 people took to the streets, demonstrating the importance of science. Ms. Rüland's key point is that science is international and takes place in vast international networks. In today's world, no one can solve problems alone, which means that if scientific freedom is threatened in one place it has an effect on science everywhere.
The March for Science also set a strong signal for the importance of communicating complex scientific topics better into society - a process that will have to be continued and improved on in the future. To listen to the full interview click here (German only).
