The House of Commons Science and Technology Committee have today published its report on Brexit, science and innovation. The report is the second in a series of Brexit reports from the committee, setting out their views and priorities for the Government, going into future negotiations with the EU. The Science and Technology Committee is responsible for holding the Government to account on all issues related to Science and is therefore a crucial interface between researchers and policymakers.
The report reiterates a series of recommendations around funding, immigration and encouraging the government to secure an early deal for science and research. The report is built on evidence submitted ahead of the Committee’s Brexit summit in February. The BSI’s written evidence can be found here and we are pleased to see many of our key asks are reiterated in this report.
The full report can be found here.
