#AktionswocheWissenschaft: Let’s get organised!

12 – 16 June | at your university or research institution

(Zur deutschen Version dieser Seite)

What is the action week about?

The system of higher education and research in Germany is in deep crisis. We can only change it for the better, if we join forces and unite our struggles across students and workers at universities and research institutions. Good working conditions in higher education and research are a prerequisite for good studying, teaching and research conditions!

Together with our partners we invite you – student, postgraduate and postdoc workers as well as committed professors in higher education and at research institutions – to show mutual solidarity. Talk about working conditions of student employees, academic and non-academic staff. Identify common issues and ways to challenge the system that intends to divide us. During the action week, we will show employers and policy makers that we are united!

Let’s get organised now for a workers’ friendly WissZeitVG and TVStud!
