Argentine groups condemn the termination of scientific workers

The Nobel Prize winners in Chemistry, Economics, Medicine, and Physics have sent a letter to Javier Milei expressing their concerns over the impact of his measures on the development of Argentina. They warned that the scientific sectors in Argentina are dangerously close to a precipice that could have negative effects not only on the country but also on the world as a whole.

The members of the National Agency for the Promotion of Research, Technological Development, and Innovation are joining forces under the slogan “Reincorporation now. Everyone here is needed!” to protest against the termination of labor contracts within their organization. Additionally, they oppose cuts made by Milei to the National Council for Scientific and Technical Research (CONICET).

The reduction of budgets for CONICET and national universities is seen as a significant devaluation of citizens and their future prospects. The lack of investment in science and technology infrastructure can lead to helplessness and vulnerability, hindering progress, innovation, and education in Argentina.

The Nobel Prize winners emphasized that investing in science and technology is crucial for economic and social progress. Freezing research projects and reducing student numbers could potentially lead to a collapse of a system built over years. Milei has stated that over 50,000 national public administration workers have already been laid off with an additional 70,000 contracts not set for renewal.
