Continued STEM collaboration for EU and UK post-Brexit

08/09/2017
UK and EU join forces for space exploration, nuclear research and medical projects

The UK will continue to collaborate with the EU over the development of innovative technologies and research after Brexit, it has been confirmed.

The work, officially called "future partnership papers" will aim to strengthen ties between the UK and the EU and maintain ongoing projects such as the European GPS and Copernicus.

“A global Britain must be a country that looks to the future. That means being one of the best places in the word for science and innovation. This paper sends a clear message to the research and innovation community that we value their work and we feel it is crucial that we maintain collaboration with our European partners after we exit," said Jo Johnson, the Science minister.

“From space exploration and developing better and safer medicines, to nuclear fusion research, the UK and Europe have a long history of close collaboration to meet the world's great challenges. It's in our mutual benefit to maintain this successful partnership, and this paper clearly outlines our desire to have a full and open discussion with the EU to shape our joint future".

The UK government's continued collaboration with the EU on projects surrounding technology, medicine and science will support jobs in Britain whilst aiding the growth of vital sectors.
