LERU presents statement on post-Brexit European Science and Innovation
The League of European Research Universities (LERU) has published a statement on the post-Brexit role of UK science and innovation. LERU welcomes Theresa May’s recent speech in which she reaffirms the UK’s wish to have a full association to the ninth EU Framework Programme on Research and Innovation ("Horizon Europe") after Brexit and stresses that in the context of Brexit it would be essential that a way forward is found that allows UK science to continue to be a key contributor to science and innovation in Europe.
LERU therefore calls upon both the UK government and the EU27 to make science and innovation a high priority in the Brexit negotiations, and to reach a solution that will allow scientists and researchers from the UK to continue to participate in all elements and instruments of the European Research Area after Brexit.
