Petition: Europe needs strong software research


With a small group of software researchers from France and Finland, the VERSEN executive board has written a one-page document as a call to action for increased funding of software engineering research in Europe. You can find the document (PDF) here.

We have further turned the document into an online petition to make a strong statement backed by organizations and software researchers in Europe and elsewhere, to signal to policy-makers (both national and European-level) the urgency of increased funding for software research:

Please sign our petition and call for aggressive funding of software research, and leveraging the expertise that Europe has to offer, to remain autonomous and stay ahead of the curve.
