Playing the Brexit cards: Strategies for universities and companies

A private meeting of Science|Business Network Brexit group


How will Brexit affect R&D strategies – for companies, universities and Europe overall?

Universities, companies and other stakeholders are anxious about the potential impact of Brexit on EU Research and Innovation programmes, and on the quality and effectiveness of these programmes. Whatever else it is, Brexit is wrapped in a miasma of uncertainty which is very unlikely to be fully dispelled by the Article 50 negotiations. A new consultation group of the Science|Business Network will share intelligence, and recommend action.
