The Future of Higher Education Research & Development – Crisis or Opportunity?
One of the UK’s key assets is our research base. How do we tackle the challenges and exploit the opportunities of life outside of the EU, post pandemic, and ensure we remain an R&D super-power? Over the last two years, our world-leading universities and businesses have demonstrated the UK’s science and R&D strength as they came together with government in the fight against Covid-19. Yet, times are uncertain for research and there are challenges in adapting to the new terrain outside of the EU, particularly as post-Brexit negotiations continue. How should we together navigate these pitfalls, exploit the opportunities, and maintain and build on the strength of our research and lifescience sector in Global Britain, working with both Europe and beyond? Join other university and business leaders for this illuminating private roundtable.
