Petition: Secure the EU Research and Innovation Budget

You may wish to sign this petition to heads of the EU to preserve the research budget.  It complements the open letter of 42 European Nobel Laureates and 5 Fields Medallists recently published in the major European newspapers.
The next summit of the EU heads of states on 22-23 November 2012 will be a decisive step in determining the EU research budget for the next seven years. The conditions are not favorable: the financial crisis has put severe constraints on the national budgets and several countries, in particular the "net-payers", are demanding cuts on the total EU budget. Research and innovation will compete with other policy priorities.
