In November 2016, we hosted a panel debate exploring the impact of Brexit on the future of UK research. Nearly twelve months on, is there greater clarity on the major issues affecting university research? Do the opportunities and challenges remain the same, or has the landscape shifted? Our distinguished panel of experts provided a lively lunchtime debate, with audience interaction.
Opportunities abound for researchers to join open international networks, including COST and Vision 2020. Such networks enable people from diverse disciplines and sectors to collaborate, developing their ideas for new research and innovation.
Join us for our Lunchtime Debate, when a distinguished panel of experts will share their views and practical experiences of what makes a successful network and how you can get involved.

Following the referendum result, many questions have been raised around the future of UK research and scholarship in a post-Brexit world.
