Argentine groups condemn the termination of scientific workers

Nobel Prize Winners Urge Government to Invest in Science: The Dangers of Neglecting Argentina’s Scientific Community

In response to the termination of labor contracts within the National Agency for the Promotion of Research, Technological Development, and Innovation, members of the organization are coming together under the motto “Reincorporation now. Everyone here is needed!” to protest against the cuts made by the Government of Javier Milei in the National Council for Scientific and Technical Research (CONICET).

Meanwhile, over 60 Nobel Prize winners in Chemistry, Economics, Medicine, and Physics have expressed their concerns regarding the potential impact of these measures on the development of Argentina. In a letter addressed to President Milei, these renowned researchers from various nations have warned that the scientific sectors in Argentina are dangerously close to a precipice.

The letter emphasizes that Argentina may be neglecting its scientists, students, and future leaders due to reductions in budgets for CONICET and national universities. The lack of investment in science and technology infrastructure can lead to helplessness and vulnerability, hindering the country’s ability to progress, innovate, and educate its population.

The Nobel Prize winners urge President Milei to reconsider budget constraints and invest more in research programs. Freezing research projects and reducing the number of students could potentially lead to a collapse of a system that has taken years to build. According to Milei, over 50,000 national public administration workers have already been laid off with an additional 70,000 contracts not set for renewal. The concerns raised by these Nobel Prize winners highlight the importance of investing in science and technology for economic progress as well as social development.

In conclusion, members of the National Agency for Promotion of Research Technological Development and Innovation are calling on Javier Milei’s government to reconsider its budget cuts towards science research organizations such as CONICET. They also urge other organizations concerned with science education or scientific research projects should come together under this motto “Reincorporation now”
