Last month, the RSE hosted a discussion on Future Frameworks for International Collaboration on Research and Innovation. This enabled a multidisciplinary group of RSE Fellows to meet with Sir Adrian Smith FRS and feed into his review of the design of UK funding schemes for international research collaboration, post-Brexit. The discussion considered the UK’s existing relationship with the EU for research and innovation, and the opportunities and challenges associated with developing credible alternatives to EU funded programmes. Participants also considered the key components of any future new UK structure for supporting international research partnerships.
