Top science officials in United Kingdom hedge on the future relationship with European research programs


Two of the most influential figures in U.K. science were in Washington, D.C., this week, meeting with the directors of the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation, among others. But their top priority was signing an agreement to support the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE), which will be built in South Dakota and Illinois. It's the kind of international collaboration that the U.K. government is keen to nurture, as its impending exit from the European Union has injected many existing relationships with uncertainty.

A plan for U.K. science after the European Union referendum

The 2016 vote to leave the European Union (EU) shocked British scientists. The European Union enjoys strong support from researchers across United Kingdom academia and industry, with 17% of all U.K. university science contracts now funded by the European Union, accounting for 73% of the growth in U.K. university science budgets in recent years. These EU funds support high-value multinational collaborations. Free movement of researchers within the European Union ensures flow of talent to where it is most needed and helps early career researchers acquire scarce skills. U.K. scientists have enjoyed access to EU research infrastructure and strong influence on shared regulatory systems. Facing potential exclusion from a global science powerhouse that it has done so much to shape, how should the United Kingdom disentangle itself from this 40-year old collaboration? We propose an eight-point plan to limit the immediate damage and to put U.K. science on the front foot in the wake of the Brexit vote.(...) - Science, by Mike Galsworthy & Martin McKee, 06 January 2017

Europe should hold fast to its scientific ambitions

The EU’s fresh round of billion-euro Flagship research projects must be open to all types of science.


Despite the rising tide of Euroscepticism, exemplified most obviously by this year’s Brexit vote, the European Commission still has big ambitions for the continent’s science. Preparations for the EU’s ninth framework research programme (FP9), to be launched in 2021, will begin in earnest next year. And, surprisingly perhaps given recent history, it will include another couple of ten-year, billion-euro FET Flagship projects.(...) - Nature, 21 Dec 2016
