About WOinactie

WOinActie is a movement that defends the interests of university education and the link with scientific research, which is under great pressure due to substantial long-term cutback and a rapid increase in student numbers.
WOinActie is a national platform for local action united by the following three demands:
  • abolishment of the efficiency cuts of 183 million euros.
  • restoration of the government funding to the level of 2000.
  • abolishment of the lumpsum cut of 19 million euros.

  • WOinActie is a community of students and employees that defends the univerity and her future. Information of our upcoming actions can be found here.
