The Guild urges politicians to maintain close relationship between UK and EU

In a recently published statement on Brexit, the Guild (a network of European research universities) urges for a strong relationship to be secured between the UK and the EU must be secured to sustain Europe’s outstanding strength in research, innovation and education. The statement emphasises that the UK has been integral to the European Research Area, whilst being fully engaged in the creation of the Framework Programmes for Research and Innovation, and Erasmus+. Universities would need a future relationship in science, education and innovation that builds on this closeness, and that enables the continued free movement of research workers and students. The Guild urges decision makers to lay the foundations for a strong, mutually beneficial relationship between the EU and UK, including the foundation for full UK association in Horizon Europe and Erasmus, to provide clarity for students and staff immediately.
