Thank you for supporting the petition to keep the UK and EU collaborating on science.
On Monday we celebrated that there is support for the petition from every Member State. This action resulted in over 400 people sharing the message on social media, and 700 people joining the petition – welcome! You can see in the word cloud the messages people have been sharing.
With this boost of activity – the biggest since launch - the petition has been signed by over *5,000* people. Inspired by this support, we are redoubling our efforts to build this momentum and reach our target. And we need your help.
**Tell a friend**
Do you know one more person who also believes that international collaboration improves research and makes science better for everyone?
Can you persuade one colleague that we need a deal to keep Europe competitive in science and give researchers certainty about how they can continue to work together?
It doesn't matter how you do it - send them an email, tag them in a tweet, text or WhatsApp - help spread the word. If everyone takes the challenge to persuade just one person to sign the petition, together we will double the support for a #DealForScience.
Many thanks again for your continued support.
Sarah (Wellcome), Marta (EU LIFE) and Matthias (Euroscience)
