Brexit and the European Parliament: What Does it Mean for Science and Research?

Last month, the European Parliament Office in the UK organised an event aimed at analysing the implications of Brexit for the UK science and research sector. As highlighted during this event, a survey prior to the referendum shows that 93% of members of the science community expressed their support for the EU. Julie Girling, Member of the European Parliament, talked of the role of the European Parliament in the Art. 50 procedure and on how the UK government plan for the science sector is full of good intentions but lacks details. The science community has always been one of the most supportive of the EU, and European chemists have recently expressed the need to continue UK-EU collaboration after Brexit in a EuCheMS position paper.
