On 7 November 2018, the Scottish Parliament held a Scottish Government Debate on Safeguarding Scotland’s International Research Collaborations and Reputation for Scientific Excellence from the Threat of Brexit.
Higher education is one of several sectors that will be impacted highly by changes brought about after Brexit. Staff from within the EU make a tremendous contribution to Scotland’s reputation as a place for research and scientific excellence. Each year Scottish HEIs receive close to £100m in research funding from the EU. Continuing to engage with the Horizon project is a significant priority for our members.
