The Netzwerk für Gute Arbeit in der Wissenschaft (network for good working conditions in academia), NGAWiss, is an open, supra-regional association of initiatives that lobby for better working conditions of academic workers as well as individuals working as non-professors in academia (Mittelbau). We lobby for good working conditions in academia for all academic workers and a comprehensive democratisation of universities and research. We understand ourselves as lobby organisation and voice of non-professor academics (Mittelbau).
