Position paper on the impact of the energy crisis on medical research

Alliance4Life has issued a joint statement on the impact of the energy crisis on research institutions and the implications of rising operational costs for the sustainability of life sciences research. The energy crisis poses a significant risk of disruption to ongoing research and harms the efforts and funds spent on it. We strongly urge national governments to:

– interpret experimental research and life sciences in particular as energy-intensive activities and include them in government support and aid schemes, and to

– revise operational funding for research infrastructures to update the increasing costs of applying state-of-the-art research technologies.

We also encourage all life science research institutions to take an active part in the Green Lab initiative and consider all practical steps to control operating costs from an economic and environmental perspective.

On behalf of the Life Sciences Alliance:

Jiří Nantl, Chairman of the Board

The Alliance for Life Sciences (Alliance4Life) is a bottom-up initiative of 12 leading institutions from 11 EU Member States located in Central and Eastern Europe that aim to bridge the divide in European health research and innovation.
