Current Brexit Negotiations

The fifth round of the Brexit negotiations started earlier this month, and in a speech made at the European Parliament, EU´s Chief Negotiator Michel Barnier stated that “Our attitude will remain resolutely constructive because we want to succeed. We want to build an ambitious and lasting partnership with the United Kingdom – which will become a third country on 30 March 2019, as was its choice – in trade, but also in security and defence or research and innovation.” Earlier in 2017 EuCheMS has informed Michel Barnier about the position of the chemistry community on Research and Education Without Borders After Brexit, urging the negotiators to retain as strong as possible a relationship between EU and UK researchers.
