The Royal Society is working to achieve the best outcome for research and innovation through the Brexit negotiations and support continuing relationships and build new ones across Europe and beyond.
We need a deal that:
- Keeps highly-skilled scientists working in the UK and ensures that international talented people still choose to come here and contribute to our globally competitive science
- Keeps access to money and networks that support the UK to work with scientists around the world.
- Maintains regulatory alignment that allows access to new medicines and technologies.
If the UK leaves the EU without a deal, it will impact on scientific research immediately and could take years to rebuild.
Our factsheet explains why leaving the EU with "no-deal" is a bad deal for science.
