FFABR (FONDO PER IL FINANZIAMENTO DELLE ATTIVITÀ BASE DI RICERCA) UMILIA I RICERCATORI PDF Stampa E-mail

Il blog Homo scientificus Europaeus (un’iniziativa ospitata da EuroScientist, webmagazine pubblicato da EuroScience) ha pubblicato una lettera firmata da alcuni componenti del Circolo universitario pavese Giorgio Errera. L’argomento è il cosiddetto FFABR (Fondo per il finanziamento delle attività base di ricerca) che finanzierà con 3.000 Euro a testa la ricerca di non più del 25% dei professori associati e del 75% dei ricercatori che faranno domanda.

Astonishment is the only possible reaction at reading the latest call for funding of MIUR. The idea of supporting basic research activity by funding less than half of the 35.363 associate professors and researchers with a sum of 3000 euros, after a time consuming and centralized selection process, sheds light on the tragic state of funding for our Universities. […] The amount of money made available to the applicants humiliates once again the professional figure of Italian researchers and represents a clear mistrust on the University autonomy and financial independency. This action raises once again very serious questions regarding the level of awareness of the Italian policy makers on the financial framework in which researchers and teachers operate in the Italian Universities. Nevertheless, this action has the merit to confirm a widespread feeling that basic activity of researchers and teachers in our universities is going to die. The cost of such death will be dramatically paid by future generations that, in the absence of any good and internationally competitive university education, will even miss the outmost possibility of the brain drain.» (Fonte: http://blog.euroscientist.com 10-07-17)
