22. April 2017: March for Science Berlin

marchscienceDer March for Science Berlin startet am 22. April 2017 um 13:00 Uhr vor der Humboldt-Universität (Unter den Linden 6).

Die weltweite Initiative March for Science betont den Wert von Wissenschaft und Forschung, insbesondere ihre Schlüsselrolle für eine offene und demokratische Gesellschaft. Anlässlich des Earth Day werden weltweit, auch in vielen Städten Deutschlands, Demonstrationen stattfinden.

Die Allianz der Wissenschaftsorganisationen unterstützt den March for Science als “wichtiges und deutliches Zeichen für die Freiheit der Wissenschaft” (PDF).

Der Max-Planck-Präsident wird beim Münchner March for Science sprechen.

Trial: The Global Law Search Engine

We can access during a trial period until 31 March 2018.

It is the largest search engine of legislation from around the world, providing access to more than 1.5 million laws and regulations from 78 countries. It contains more than 250.000 technical standards from over 100 world-leading standard-setting organizations.

The resource uses machine translation to translate legislation from non-English speaking countries to English.
