Petition Text #

Science has been a key success of the EU and must remain a priority to keep Europe competitive. International collaboration makes science stronger and we should not let Brexit disrupt this.

Researchers need a long-term solution to allow them to continue working together on the big challenges our societies face, transforming peoples’ lives for the better. It’s essential that politicians quickly find a way to keep this collaboration as easy as possible.

We call on the EU and the UK to sign a research and innovation agreement as soon as possible. This should include:

  • A commitment by European countries to work together to make the European Research Area a world leader in science;
  • Full researcher mobility between the UK and the rest of Europe for all levels and career stages;
  • A commitment to collaboration, including UK associate membership of Horizon Europe;
  • Co-operation on regulations that support science.

Sign our petition to show that science is stronger when we work together. #dealforscience#
