Enlightening the Constitutional Debate: Science; Higher Education

This event has passed

Discussion Forum

On 17 October 2013 the RSE held a public discussion seminar at the The King’s College Conference Centre Auditorium, Kings College, University of Aberdeen, Aberdeen, on the possible impacts of constitutional change upon Science and Higher education.

This seminar examined the possible affects of Scottish independence upon the ability and ease with which students are able to cross the border to take up Higher Education opportunities, and how this might affect the accessibility of Higher Education for those in the UK and those in Scotland. The seminar also looked at Research Funding, particularly funding for research in the sciences, and asked how UK Research Councils will decide to allocate funding in the event of Scotland leaving the UK.
