Researchers need certainty on scientific collaboration between the UK and EU.
Science has been a key success of the EU and must remain a priority to keep Europe competitive. International collaboration makes science stronger and we should not let Brexit disrupt this.
Researchers need a long-term solution to allow them to continue working together on the big challenges our societies face, transforming peoples’ lives for the better. It’s essential that politicians quickly find a way to keep this collaboration as easy as possible.
We call on the EU and the UK to sign a research and innovation agreement as soon as possible. This should include:
A commitment by European countries to work together to make the European Research Area a world leader in science;
Full researcher mobility between the UK and the rest of Europe for all levels and career stages;
A commitment to collaboration, including UK associate membership of Horizon Europe;
Co-operation on regulations that support science.
Sign our petition to show that science is stronger with international collaboration.
Thank you from the petition organisers: EU-LIFE, EuroScience and Wellcome.
