Open and free communication
Science thrives by virtue of open and free communication. Meetings with colleagues of all nationalities and cooperation across borders are of vital importance for the progress of science, for the spreading and growth of knowledge. The Netherlands' Physical Society NNV is devoted to defending the interests of science and scientists in continuing fruitful and peaceful international cooperation.
The recent implementation of an executive order by the new administration in the United States forms a threat to the international character of science, and in particular for the scientific career of our colleagues having a (second) nationality of one of the states targeted by the measure. Many of our colleagues have signed a petition (https://notoimmigrationban.com/) against the travel restrictions. In consultation with other learned societies around the world the NNV will continue to defend the importance of free scientific communication and exchange of ideas.
