Brexit and the European Parliament: What does it mean for science and research? - 10 November 2017
During the referendum, science and research communities were unanimous in their opinion that the UK should remain in the EU. In a recent position paper, moreover, the government expressed its desire to continue participating in many of the EU’s scientific projects – including nuclear energy, space programmes and defence research – after the UK leaves.
This event explored the impact of Brexit on a field which is critical to the UK economy and the willingness of the EU-27 to allow British institutions to stay part of key collaborative efforts.
