About this Event

The Tech Nation Visa UK enables the brightest and best tech talent (including academics) from around the world to come and work in the UK’s digital technology sector, contributing their cutting-edge expertise, creativity and innovation to maintaining the UK’s position at the forefront of the global digital economy.

Tech Nation has been designated by the Home Office, the ministerial department of the UK government responsible for immigration, to endorse applications for the Global Talent Visa in digital technology.

We will be talking to Oli about the benefits of the visa program for scientists all over the world, how to apply and who should apply for it. We will explore the availability of hundreds of jobs and grants supporting the booming science and innovation sectors in the UK. The need for talent coming from academia is bigger now more than ever and the British government accommodates global talent to thrive in the UK.

We will try to address Brexit uncertainties and provide more clarification on how the Tech Nation Visa program and other initiatives support scientists from all sectors to come and work in the UK, either joining companies or starting their own businesses with the support of numerous incentives for academics interested in applying their skills and knowledge at best companies in the world and/or commercialising their scientific research.

As always, you’ll be able to ask your questions and get them answered live!
