Implications of leaving the EU for science and research examined

5 July 2016

The Science and Technology Committee examines how the aspects which underpin our science and research might be affected by exit from the EU, and how these might best be provided in future; the science implications and opportunities under different 'models' for a future relationship with the EU; the scope for continued access to the EU's Horizon 2020 funding; and the opportunities for wider science collaboration. The Committee also probes in particular depth the Switzerland/EU model.
