On 8th May, the Royal Institution held a summit for scientists, policymakers and other key stakeholders to consider the impact of the Brexit vote on science and innovation. The event, Brexit: the scientific impact, was jointly supported by Academia Europaea, EuroScience and the Royal Institution. Academia Europaea was represented by Professor Ole Petersen, in his capacity as Vice-President, as well as Academic Director of the Cardiff Hub.
The whole of the debate was live-streamed and can be viewed via the following link.
Professor Petersen was quoted extensively in an article in Science Business, following the event.
I think we ought to be authentic. I don’t see why we have to try and understand those who voted no. Let’s just say it as we see it. Brexit is a bad idea.
