The UK’s role in global science and research and Horizon Europe participation


Session by EU|UK Forum

The UK has ambitions to enhance its role as a global leader in science. This not only requires strong continuing relations with the rest of Europe – the UK’s biggest and fasting growing scientific collaborator in terms of co-authorship – but a commitment to engage globally in areas of shared research strength, innovation and technology, infrastructure and global challenges. This event is an opportunity to reflect on the UK’s current position and where it needs to get to in order to meet these ambitions

Sir Adrian Smith, President of the Royal Society and Prof. Jean-Pierre Bourguignon, Honorary Professor, Institut des Hautes Études Scientifiques in conversation with Lowri Evans, Former Director-General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs (DG GROW), European Commission.
