Royal Society reiterates the case against Brexit

UK researchers obtained nearly £3 billion more in European Union research grants than the UK government paid into EU research funds, the Royal Society has said.

The data are contained in the first of three reports about the EU’s role in UK research, published on 18 December. The reports are intended to inform the debate ahead of the in-out referendum, due to take place before the end of 2017.

Much of the society’s analysis is also contained in a joint learned societies statement to an ongoing House of Lords inquiry into UK science and the EU.
