DAAD and the alliance of science organizations in Germany support the March for Science which will take place around the world on April 22nd, 2017.

Initiated in the US, the March aims to raise awareness for the importance of free and unimpeded scientific inquiry and takes a stand against attacks on academic freedom. In Germany, academic freedom is enshrined in its constitution. The alliance of German science organizations regularly addresses issues on education and research policy and contributes to the development of a competitive and innovative research landscape in Germany.
