Event description

Description

In the wake of the referendum result on the UK’s membership of the European Union, many questions have been raised around the future of UK research and scholarship in a post-Brexit world. This panel session will explore constructive ideas about how best to pursue European and other international collaborations in a post-Brexit world and how the UK can continue to have a strong input into international science policymaking.

Professor Richard Catlow, the incoming Foreign Secretary at the Royal Society, will give an opening talk.  There will then be short presentations by our panel and an opportunity for wider debate with the audience.

Our panellists are:

Professor Richard Catlow FRS, Professor of Catalytic and Computational Chemistry, Cardiff University and Foreign Secretary, Royal Society (from December 2016)

Sir John Skehel FMedSci FRS MAE, Vice-President and Biological Secretary, Royal Society

Professor Nora de Leeuw FRSC, Pro-Vice Chancellor (International and Europe), Cardiff University
