How we are using our proposals to inform policy in the UK
We are engaging with a range of key stakeholders to carry these messages to the UK government.
Our President, Sir John Holman is representing the Council for Mathematical Sciences, Institute of Physics, Royal Society of Biology and Royal Society of Chemistry as a member of the Government’s High Level Stakeholder Working Group on EU Exit, Universities, Research and Innovation. This group provides an opportunity to engage with the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, the Department for Education and the Department for Exiting the EU on issues facing the science and innovation community as the UK exits the EU.
We have provided oral evidence to the House of Commons Environmental Audit Committee on the crucial role that chemistry will play in the UK’s future’s regulatory regime and worked with our sister societies to call upon government to develop future immigration arrangements that keep UK science open to the world.
We were part of a group of organisations that provided input into a briefing outlining Science Priorities for Brexit authored by Stephen Metcalfe MP, Chair of the Parliamentary and Scientific Committee and the Commons Science and Technology Committee
