SOME CONTEXTIn recent years, there has been a growing interest in issues surrounding slow science and academic activism. In 2012, a Slow Science workshop was organized at VUB, resulting in a yearly doctoral school course 'What does it mean to be a researcher in 21st century academia?' organized by several Flemish universities. The next year the 'Actiegroep Hoger Onderwijs' launched its website and a series of op-ed articles in mainstream newspapers. Since then, many other initiatives such as the Désexcellence group at ULB or the Women's strike at Ugent have been established as well.
AIMIt is our aim to strengthen these existing networks as well as to establish new networks between people who would like to be involved in a number of initiatives related to slow science and activism. We also want to collect all information on events, initiatives and developments on slow science in an interactive website (https://slowscienceblog.wordpress.com/) and create email lists in order to involve as many interested people as possible. Yet, we also do not want to overload you with emails, information and invitations in which you might not be interested.
Therefore we would like to ask you to fill in this form. We will only add your email address to the email lists in which you indicate to be interested. We won't share these data with any other people or organisations - they will only serve to help us communicate with everyone wanting to be involved.
Please forward this link to anyone who might be interested as well.
