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. #dealforscience

International collaboration makes science stronger and we should not let Brexit disrupt this. Ensuring that the UK can join the Horizon Europe programme will ensure researchers can continue to tackle shared challenges, such as cancer and climate change.
Now is our last chance to stand up for science. The Brexit negotiations are in their final stages – the last scheduled round finishes at the very start of October. Both sides agree with the principle on ongoing collaboration and participation in Horizon Europe has been discussed frequently. However, there has been too little progress towards an agreement.
Ahead of the last negotiating round, we published... further
