Brexit stalemate may harm Scottish research, says RSE

Slow progress in negotiating the UK’s exit from the European Union could harm research at Scottish universities, according to the Royal Society of Edinburgh.

A report by the Young Academy of Scotland, which represents the nation’s emerging young professionals, has identified international research and innovation as one area in which Scotland faces challenges as the UK prepares to leave the EU. It also addresses the rights of young EU citizens living in the UK, employment law and the creative industries.

The research chapter of the 26-page report, written by Peter McColl, policy and research director at the innovation agency Nesta, says that restrictions on EU citizens working in the UK, uncertainty over continued access to EU funding and access to markets are of particular concern for researchers in Scotland.
